Obama's new council on women and girls

Just wondering what you might think about this subject? I'm still considering the implications, but these are my questions:

Is this needed?  

Aren't there more pressing economic obligations in light of our failing/frozen economy? Do we need to spend money on this now?

Whose agenda will be behind this Council?  

Will this be another pro-choice advocacy group? When "protections" for women are mentioned (in terms of rape and domestic violence, etc.), will anyone consider protections for future women in the womb of a pregnant woman?  Will this be another venue where we protect "rights" but not people?

Will this heat-up  or tone down the so-called "mommy wars" in our society? 

Will this hurt men? Families?

Here's the Motherlode blog at the New York Times.  The discussion started yesterday.
