Obama highlights women at economic forum as party courts female vote
By Rachel Rose Hartman | ABC OTUS News – 2 hrs 21 mins ago

President Barack Obama headlined an event Friday morning focused on one demographic that is quickly becoming the key voting bloc in 2012: women.

At a White House Women and the Economy Forum, which coincided with the release of a White House report on the same topic, Obama spoke about the women who shaped his life, the impact women's inequality has on the country's economy, and the ways in which he says his administration has made women a priority.

"The conversation has been oversimplified" about women, Obama said. "Women are not some monolithic block ... an interest group. You shouldn't be treated that way."

He touted Obamacare's impact on women's health policy, noting that young people can now remain on their parents' health care plans, preventative care for women is now covered by insurance, contraception is available "at no additional charge," and companies can't deny coverage or charge more because an applicant is female.
