A big family, a reading addiction, and the occasional celebrity scandal are the ingredients of life that create one woman's opinion on just about everything.

EQUALITY NOW & Governor Spitzer

Take a second and check out what Equality Now sent out about the NY Governor Spitzer sex scandal.

Dear Friends,

Yesterday New York State Governor Eliot Spitzer resigned. Below is a link to an article in the New York Times, by renowned journalist Nina Bernstein, titled “Foes of Sex Trade Are Stung by the Fall of an Ally.” The article, which mentions Equality Now’s campaign against Big Apple Oriental Tours and quotes Executive Director Taina Bien-Aimé, links the allegations against Governor Spitzer to the broader issue of the commercial sexual exploitation of women.

For over fifteen years Equality Now has worked to end human rights abuses against women and girls around the world, including sex trafficking, sex tourism and other forms of commercial sexual exploitation.

We urge you to read the New York Times article, or see full text below. Thank you for your ongoing support.

Best regards,

Jessica Neuwirth
President
Equality Now

Spitzer is a man ho and I hope he enjoyed getting his kicks for $4,000 an hour. How sad and pathetic.
This is all the NYC news is talking about and since I work in NYC, the discussion are endless!
He should have gone to Nevada for his sex fun. At least it is legal there.
