The problem with statements like the one made about Ann Romney by Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen is that they are usually unaccompanied by evidence (“The left’s war on moms,” Comment & Analysis, April 13).

Regardless of whether a mother has worked outside of her home, she may still be a hardworking, good mother. Working outside the home is immaterial when it comes to the quality of motherhood.

My only issue with your editorial on this matter is that it presumes members of the political left have a monopoly on comments like Ms. Rosen‘s. Many individuals, regardless of political affiliation, have a prejudice against mothers who stay home with their children. Especially during tough economic times, people are quick to judge people who seem to have it easier than they do. We must remember the grass always looks greener on the other side of the fence.
