Gender issue II

As it happens, this year Nevada’s ballot Question Two contains gendered language, too.

In the 1970s and 1980s, women’s rights leaders like Mary Gojack and Sue Wagner had gender-specific language removed from the statutes in favor of gender-neutral language. Now, Question Two would lift the sales tax from “feminine hygiene products” instead of “hygiene products,” believed to be the first gender specific statute since the state’s laws were cleansed.
