There couldn't be a Republican health care bill that doesn't continue the War on Women—because there can't be a Republican anything that isn't a direct assault on women's rights, or women’s health, or women’s bank accounts. And Ryancare is pretty much all three.

Cutting Medicaid, taking Medicaid funding away from Planned Parenthood, getting rid of birth control coverage, getting rid of abortion coverage, and just plain old making health insurance too expensive for everyone—including women who earn less than men—all mean that women are a particular target of Ryancare, and poor women especially. As usual.
