Women need to run. Get away from the kitchen, step away from the jello, get out of the 12 kid minivan, and run for office. Get involved.


I'm confused by this letter. It seemingly says that Women should be mad that there are not more women representatives. But noted that women have the right to run just as anyone else. So why get mad?

I'd run if I were a woman.

Let's elect Mia Love in the 4th Congessional District!

Perhaps there are not enough Middle-aged, White, Christian, Males in Utah giving them permission to leave the kids and kitchen to run for office?


What about the other half if the voting block --
What good LDS woman would vote for an evil "working Mom"?

...and - before you start throwing darts - it's NOT the LDS church causing it.

The problem here is cultural...Utah Mormon cultural.


I would like to see ordinary working people, of either gender, who were free to do so, get more involved in politics. OTOH I think they might be corrupted by politics, especially national politics, as so many are.

The bunch who are in Washington, with few exceptions, do not represent most of us, whether they be a Harry or a Nancy, an Orrin or a Rob.

Re: "Utah, with its poor record for women's representation . . . ."

Yeah, we in Utah -- one of the very first states to extend the vote to women -- need a lecture from a NJ resident about our "poor record."
