There is certainly a war on women, but it's more because the majority of conservatives in positions of power are afraid of the opinion shift of the majority that is happening right now, which is resulting in more people being in favor of more access to birth control and other women's rights. Its attempts at stifling this trend are passing in states where the majority of the legislature is socially conservative, and at the Congressional level since Republicans in Congress toe the party line with minimal exception lest they be supplanted by an upstart, but it's boiling under the surface in states that are liberal-leaning yet are still on the whole socially moderate.

On another note, I'm quite concerned by the blatant lack of investment in repairing our existing infrastructure and in providing alternate means to our existing infrastructure to reduce wear and tear and congestion on that existing infrastructure.
