A bad time to be a woman?

A new voter ID law in Arizona turns out to be disenfranchising women, largely because their last names don't always match their birth certificates. ahem. Meantime, judicial heavyweights seem to think it's ok to ask a woman to raise her hand before making decisions regarding her health and her body. Maureen Dowd catalogs the backsliding on the cultural front, as women are again told (or come to believe) that they should give up their ambitions and use their wiles to land and keep a man.
