“Missing” Women

The National Council for Research on Women (NCRW) released “MISSING: Information About Women’s Lives” today, a report documenting a pattern of information concerning women disappearing from Federal Government websites.
The report also covers the trend of government websites providing misleading health information–like the myth that there’s a link between breast cancer and abortion.
NCRW President Linda Basch said, “MISSING is a wake up call to the nation that a nonpartisan legacy of government is being destroyed. Decisions to distort or withhold information have a cumulative negative effect for women and girls that is serious and detrimental and must not be left unchecked. Concerned citizens must make their voices heard through communicating to officials and elected representatives the crucial need for unbiased, objective information.”
