While the number of women in the corporate boardroom has been slowly rising in recent decades, some argue that the free market still needs a strong nudge from the government to shatter the glass ceiling.
In a major setback for the Obama administration, a federal judge in Virginia struck down as unconstitutional a key provision of the landmark health care law, saying that forcing all Americans to buy health insurance "exceeds the constitutional boundaries of congressional power."
Conservative groups are up and running with new, hybrid organizations this election cycle that have more freedom and spending power than traditional nonprofits and think tanks to go after President Obama and the Democratic-led Congress.
"When women have a chance to work as full and equal partners, economies prosper," said Neera Tanden, president of the Center for American Progress.
But Neera Tanden, chief operating officer at the Center for American Progress, a liberal-leaning organization that was influential in providing talking points and strategy for Mr. Obama during his election campaign and during the health care debate, said the judge's ruling "ignored precedent, the consensus of his colleagues and the Constitution itself to strike down an essential component of the Affordable Care Act."
