Mitt Romney's infamous debate remark is now stirring controversy over which presidential candidate will win the most votes of women, an area that he and President Barack Obama are reportedly fighting over before the Nov. 6 Election Day. 

Romney made the remark "binders full of women" while answering a question about gender inequality in the work place and fair play for women in his debate with President Obama on Tuesday, Oct. 16. Immediately after he uttered the words, thousands of jokes and memes were posted on social media sites such as Tumblr, Twitter and Facebook. However, with the storm nearly passing, reports are now showing that the two presidential candidates are fighting hard to win the votes of women, which some polls suggest may end up deciding who will win the election.

In his campaign trail, Romney continuously talked to women about easing their economic challenges while Obama argued that he values their concerns and contributions to society, according to Newsday.

Romney said that his democratic competitor "has failed America's women," while Obama shot back during a speech in Iowa, "I want my daughters paid just like somebody else's sons are paid for the same job. We don't have to collect a bunch of binders to find qualified, talented, driven young women." 

It has been shown in statistics that over decades of presidentail elections, democrats have been able to secure more votes from women than their Republican competitors. However, Romney is trying hard before Nov. 6 to beat Obama in the challenge. 

The report added that in one effort, a new television ad by Romney will be geared toward women and will suggest that Obama takes unnecessarily hard positions on social issues.  

"You know, those ads saying Mitt Romney would ban all abortions and contraception seemed a bit extreme, so I looked into it," a woman says in the new ad. "Turns out, Romney doesn't oppose contraception at all. In fact, he thinks abortion should be an option in cases of rape, incest, or to save a mother's life." 

The final decision of who will win the election might be in the hands of America's women.
