    It's not at the top of her to-do list, but it's certainly important to her. Based on this "on the issues" site it seems pretty clear to me her way of working for equality among the sexes is through her vote.

    Warren is a cancer to this society, and should be barred from anything detrimental to decision making, or the education of our children for the rest of her life. Maybe she can get a job as a Home Depot cashier....That would be ok.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    She was a co-sponsor of the Paycheck Fairness Act:

    https://votesmart.org/bill/17767/474...k-fairness-act

    The Military Justice Improvement Act (which helps women in the military)

    https://votesmart.org/bill/17609/469...nt-act-of-2013

    And the Protect Women's Health From Corporate Interference Act

    https://votesmart.org/bill/18702/493...ce-act-of-2014

    Is this a fair start or do you require that she personally perform a flying sidekick to the head of every sexist man she encounters?

    Really? From your source
    Vote Smart's Synopsis:
    Vote on a motion to invoke cloture on a motion to proceed to debate on a bill that prohibits any employer that maintains a group health plan for its employees from denying coverage of any health care item or service required under federal law.

    This is nothing more than a conjured up bill that does nothing but play politics.

    So? She co-sponsored those bills.

    Apparently you do agree with me regarding the crux of my post.

    I don't actually know what the crux of your post is, so currently I'm holding off on agreement or disagreement.

    Ah, so then Jasper is wrong when he says she never tried to fight against sexism. Hmmm......

    I'm going to take a wild guess and say he never claimed that, but point is I'm satisfied that equal rights are important to Warren, and the means she's decided to use are the ones directly related to her job: sponsoring and voting on the bills important to her. Sounds good to me.

    Of course I never said that.

    It should tell you something that you're forced to invent these straw men to keep whacking away at Warren, now at me.
