One stood and talked for hours. The other struggled just to be heard. What they have in common is that both state Sens. Wendy Davis, D-Fort Worth, and Leticia Van de Putte, D-San Antonio, this year proved themselves the strongest voices for Texas women, anywhere. Forced into the national spotlight by their efforts to halt and bring common sense to sweeping abortion regulations that are likely to cut women off from access to other, basic health care (like birth control!), these women stood up to the white, middle-aged men under the Capitol dome with graceful and indefatigable aplomb – reminding us, again, of the real power of Texas women. Gov. Davis and Lt. Gov. Van de Putte in 2014!
