Romney has released a new ad today titled “Dear Daughter” which features a mother speaking to her young child about the challenges women are facing in America under the Obama administration.  Eli Stokols has reported that the ad will run in Colorado; however, the exact ad buy was not available.  Here’s an excerpt:

“Dear Daughter, welcome to America.  Your share of Obama’s debt is over $50,000, and it grows every day.  Obama’s policies are making it harder on women.  The poverty rate for women – the highest is 17 years.  More women are unemployed under President Obama – more than 5.5 million can’t find work.”

As we’ve written about extensively, women are the Holy Grail for candidates this election season.  But a new Denver Post poll shows that the gender gap is becoming a gender sliver, with Romney narrowing the gap to just six points.   In Colorado and across the United States, women have suffered under Obama’s oppressive policies.  Just a quick rundown from our post last month:

  • Obama has a history of paying his female staffers 18% less than their male counterparts.
  • The most recent Bureau of Labor Statistics’ job report for July 2012 showed that 214,000 women over the age of 20 have exited the workforce since June.
  • When comparing July 2011 to July 2012, we see that over 1.5 million women over the age of 20 have left the workforce.
  • More than 860,000 more women are unemployed since Obama took office.

President Obama, it’s not about free birth control, it’s about economic freedom for women.
