"The Election is Over, but the Fight Goes On," Kate Michelman, Huffington Post blogs: "The national vote, while worthy of high-fives all around, is hardly the end of our struggle for women's rights," writes Michelman, former president of NARAL Pro-Choice America. Conservatives have "redouble[d] their efforts to force their cause at the state and local levels," she adds. "Extreme conservatives can't roll back Roe v. Wade, but they can and will try to crawl beneath the radar of broad publicity with seemingly innocuous ways to shame us, to deny our rights, our equality," she continues, adding, "They will count on our satisfaction in winning the White House to soon give way to apathy. To ignore their zeal is to risk forfeiting our hard-fought gains" (Michelman, Huffington Post blogs, 11/27).
