We've seen the damage the government shutdown is doing to the lives of many Americans this week, whether you're a woman or a worker (or both!). Now the Wall Street Journal confirms that the shutdown has resulted in thousands of low-income kids being prevented from going to preschool because of closed Head Start…
We already knew that the sequester would cut off 70,000 children nationwide to Head Start access, and subsequently cause the layoff of 14,000 Head Start personnel. (One of whom is my mother, incidentally; she works at Head Start in Trenton, and she is NOT psyched about what's going on.)
It's the season of social conservatives saying exactly what they intend for women! Thanks for dispensing with the subtext, guys.
