A few weeks ago President Obama addressed me and my peers at University of Colorado at Boulder on the issue of student loans.
He also addressed the importance of being engaged citizens of our communities. One way to be engaged is to be informed. I was browsing his website and found The Life of Julia—a timeline of one woman’s life from age three to 67.
Check out the timeline, which shows what policies Obama has in store for a woman over the course of her life in comparison to those of Mitt Romney.
