Nevada Democrat Jacky Rosen casts herself as a woman of the people. She worked her way through college as a waitress, worked her way up the corporate ladder as a computer programmer and opened her own consulting business. Now, she is running in a competitive race for U.S. Senator in the state.
When Donald Trump this week publicly disparaged his former aide Omarosa Manigault-Newman as a “dog,” he crystallized again the belligerent style and volatile behavior that has exposed Republican candidates in November to the risk of a crushing backlash among women. The most important unanswered question for the midterm election may be how far that backlash extends among the women whose preponderant support keyed his victory in the first place.
Omarosa Manigault-Newman is not doing any of this because she wants to do the right thing. She is a cheerful opportunist who maintained a close relationship with a reality TV host on whose show she appeared 14 years ago, and who parlayed that peculiar bit of fame into a West Wing job after he became president. (This is almost certainly not the reward she expected, but sometimes, shrewd investments pay off more handsomely than one imagined.) She defended him to everyone until the moment she determined that remaining loyal was no longer her most profitable course of action, at which point she promised to sell explosive evidence of his bigotry—not that anyone would be surprised to hear him use a racial slur, given how flippantly we assume he uses it in private, but still—to the highest bidder.

As we observe Women’s Equality Day on Aug. 26, which commemorates the day on which the Nineteenth Amendment, giving women the right to vote, was certified in 1920, it’s important to take the opportunity to take stock. How far has the United States come in terms of women’s rights — and how is it stalling, or going backwards? The news in many quarters seems positive. More Democrat women are running for office in the 2018 midterm elections than ever before, and the #MeToo movement continues to drive public conversation. But there are some fundamental rights for American women remain at risk.
