Last night, Republican Sen. Scott Brown and Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren shed the discussion on Warren’s heritage from their talking points.  Brown touted his voting record, but lost his footing when asked about women’s rights and issues.

Sen. Brown is pro-choice; he’s stood against violence against women. There’s been no doubt, as Warren put it, “that Senator Brown is a good husband and a good father to his daughters.”

But she reminded the audience that this election is about everyone’s daughter – underscoring why Brown’s votes against equal pay for women and insurance coverage for birth control and preventative services is unacceptable.

Check out Warren’s take (in the embedded video) on why women’s rights can’t afford to be picked apart.
