New Campaign Interactive Tool Highlights the Decision Women Face in This Election
As Mitt Romney campaigns with Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell today, the Obama campaign released “The Life of Julia,” an online interactive tool that highlights the decision women face in this election. It tracks how President Obama and Mitt Romney’s policies will affect Julia, a typical middle-class woman, at each step in her life: from early childhood, through her school years, until she has a child of her own, starts a business and retires.
Using this new online tool, moms can see what President Obama and Mitt Romney’s contrasting policies will mean for their daughters. Students and recent graduates can see what they will mean for them, their sisters and their friends. Working women and seniors can see how the President’s and Mitt Romney’s visions will affect their ability to earn a living, support their families and retire comfortably.
President Obama believes we need to create long-term economic growth and women's economic security. Mitt Romney would cut programs that help women prosper and grow our economy over the long term to help pay for his tax cuts for those at the top.
The campaign also released a memo today that details how Romney’s policies undermine women's economic security. Romney and McDonnell have some explaining to do to American women about their extreme agendas: both would refuse to stand up for equal pay for equal work and turn women's critical health care decisions over to their bosses.

This week Mitt Romney said that when people ask him what he’ll do for the economy, he would “look at what the President’s done, and do the opposite.” When individuals go online and see “The Life of Julia”, they’ll see exactly what he means – and what that would mean for women.
