Advocates and experts in gender and politics also noticed the absence. Betsy Fischer Martin, the executive director of the Women and Politics Institute at American University, tweeted that with 15 minutes left in the debate, candidates had not gotten a single question on reproductive rights, pay equity, or child care.
