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?or
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."
