Best act of political theater

Female Democrats wrapped themselves in yellow caution tape

Staff Pick

Democratic women had heard and seen enough. After sitting through days and days of discussions under the Gold Dome about making abortions more difficult and restricting access to contraceptives, part of the out-of-nowhere, unnecessary "War on Women", they decided to take a stand - literally. On the final day of the 40-day legislative session, after the state Senate voted to approve a bill that tightened restrictions on abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, female Democrats wrapped themselves in yellow caution tape and marched out of the upper chamber and into the Capitol's hallways, shouting "Women will remember in November." The bill passed, but the women of the minority party were able to remind GOP lawmakers that they're the ones affected by such pieces of legislation.
