Debt supercommittee lacks diversity

Felicia Sonmez of the Washington Post interviewed NOW President Terry O’Neill about the appointed Congress supercommittee: “Half the committee ought to be women, even though women only account for 17 percent of the Congress. Women are going to be disproportionately affected by what the committee does. I’m very troubled by the fact that these 11 men and one woman are now going to take the place of 535 legislators.”
