Nothing at all wrong with women running for and holding offices in government,
local, state or federal. The issue becomes, which women and most importantly
what are their politics? I'd certainly like to see Mia Love win a
congressional seat. However, no matter how feminist the Democrats might be,
they don't want her to win. We could have had a woman Vice President
recently. You think the open minded liberal thinking progressive people of
America would have seen that as a feather in the cap of womens equality? They
hated Sarah Palin like they hated Reagan or Nixon. When it comes to politics,
gender becomes a distant 2nd to ideology.
Great editorial! Yes - we need more women in leadership positions bringing new
ideas and strengths! Loved the suggestion for husbands to pick up their end of
the parenting stick and allow their wives to contribute. Families would be
strengthened too, as children spend more time with fathers as well.
We need good people in our governments, no matter their gender. Theres PLENTY of
females who don't represent my views, and I'd much rather have a man
who shared my views.
We're the state where women are the auxiliary, the relief. Whatever role
they deserve, it will be a secondary role here.
Olene Walker would have been a good governor but the GOP leadership threw her
under the bus and said never mind...
