Women are interviewed about Reagan politics and policies, and their interest in having a stronger voice to vote on issues.  The film speaks to statistics that reveal a gender gap in the number of women who vote, and their income. The film also documents the increase in women in the workforce as well as the Reagan administration's cuts to funding for programs that help women and families. Directed by Jenny Rohrer.
