WASHINGTON, October 21, 2004 ( – Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee (CWALAC) says Teresa Heinz Kerry’s comments undervaluing first lady Laura Bush’s investment in her children as a stay-at-home mom should enlighten American women to the stark contrast between the wives of the presidential candidates.  “Mrs. Heinz Kerry’s comments are disturbing,” says Dr. Janice Crouse, spokesperson for CWALAC. “Her comments indicate disapproval of those American women who sacrifice a career and all of its benefits in order to care for and train their children at home. A potential first lady of the United States should not demean the heroic women who are investing in America’s future generations in order to win the White House.”“Mrs. Heinz Kerry’s apology only reinforced the ideology implicit in her original comments,” said Crouse. “Her apology was based on Mrs. Bush’s employment as a teacher and librarian, rather than her lifetime investment in raising her two daughters. Mrs. Kerry’s words imply that a woman who stays home to raise children in place of a career is less credible or intelligent than a woman who pursues a career at the expense of a family. She appeals to feminist myths, while insulting the majority of American women.”  jhw
