Women are scared, women are angry — and we have a right to be. If you’re an ally of women, now’s the time to make that clear.”

In response, AP news reporter Meg Kinnard tweeted: “There are over 300,000 more female voters in South Carolina than there are men, yet South Carolina overwhelmingly elects candidates who oppose abortion. Regardless of how you stand on the issue, this ‘man vs. woman’ messaging is not based in fact or reality.” …

Statistics show that participation by female voters is high in other states, bolstering Kinnard’s observation. Statistics released by Alabama’s secretary of state, for example, show that in the 2018 general election, 957,451 female voters cast their ballots, as opposed 764,217 male voters. A study by the Pew polling organization showed that participation by female voters in 2018 was approximately 53% of the electorate, which is similar to previous years. …
