Coalition of Labor Union Women Condemns Akin Remarks

The Coalition of Labor Union Women (CLUW) issued a news release Tuesday expressing "outrage at the sexist and demeaning remarks by Congressman Akin referring to 'legitimate rape.' This is one more example of the war on women and it will not be tolerated." CLUW President Karen J. See said women should use the remarks "as a galvanizing moment to push for increased voter registration particularly among young women and encourage union women to run for office."
