BOSTON (AP) — A liberal group in Massachusetts has gathered in front of the campaign headquarters of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and delivered binders bearing his record on issues that concern women.

The Saturday afternoon event follows Romney’s comment during the second debate that he received “binders full of women” when he sought to diversify his cabinet as Massachusetts governor. The remark sparked an instant wave of social media parodies of the phrase.

Members of ProgressMass delivered binders featuring Romney’s photographs and documents detailing what the group describes as Romney’s disappointing record on various issues of primary concern to women.

State Rep. Marty Walz said Romney’s position on contraception is “downright extreme” and his position on equal pay for women is essentially that he’ll give them time at the end of the day to go home and cook dinner.
