Mariette Kalinowski writing in the pages of the New York Times declared this to be, “A Victory for Women at War.”
It didn’t take long for the logic about what women can do to be used as an argument of what women must do. The Wall Street Journal announced that the White House says it will be working with Congress to reconsider the draft.
