"Women make up almost 51 percent of the U.S. population but less than 10 percent of the House and Senate GOP..."
"Of course, there are fewer Republicans than Democrats of either gender in the two houses. But even on a percentage basis, Republicans suffer a gender gap. Twenty-two percent of House Democrats are women, but only 9.5 percent of House Republicans are. In the Senate, nearly 23 percent of the Democrats are women, but only 10 percent of the Republicans are. "
I do believe one of the biggest points IMO the article points out is that the Rep. party is pushing out the moderates....
Why do you think your party lacks women in leadership roles?
Feel free to also discuss a lack of women (percentage wise) in government, from any party....
*not a Rep. bashing post, just intresting and wanted to hear from Rep. women...all party/no party welcome to reply

IMO I think women still have a long way to go and this is in every party. I think it was outrages and vulgar how Palin was treated by this country and the ABUSE she endured should have NEVER been tolerated by anyone.

I vote for the candidate that most closely resembles my ideals, regardless of gender. I thought that was something we weren't supposed to let influence us (gender, race, religion, etc.).
