Go left, young man

Feminist activists, pointing to polls that show Vice President Al Gore lagging among female voters, have urged him to embrace more forcibly the agenda of left-wing women’s groups.

Leaders of the National Organization for Women, the Feminist Majority, the American Association of University Women and other feminist groups met for nearly two hours with the vice president Tuesday at his office in the Old Executive Office Building, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Also present were Gore campaign manager Donna Brazile, Labor Secretary Alexis M. Herman and Health and Human Services Secretary Donna E. Shalala, reporter Edwin Chen wrote.

“There is no question in the minds of all these huge women’s organizations that a [Texas Gov. George W.]Bush presidency would be a disaster for women, and our message was that the distinctions [between Mr. Gore and Mr. Bush] were not being distinctly drawn,” said Kim Gandy, executive vice president of NOW, who attended the session. “We said: ‘Let us help you reach the women of this country.’ “
