Women of the Senate to appear on the Democratic convention stage Wednesday

On Tuesday night, Democratic women of the House appeared on stage and a handful spoke. Female delegates on the convention hall stood and cheered as the lawmakers described different fights they’ve had in Congress and the help they've received from President Obama.

Obama has been polling well with female voters, a group that now votes in larger numbers than men. His campaign is hoping to win reelection with the help of female voters by portraying Republicans as worse for women’s rights, on issues such as abortion and healthcare.
