The question about women in the Republican Party being represented fairly got me to thinking...do women in the Democratic Party feel as though they are represented fairly? I'm not trying to start drama, I really would like to know. So do you feel the women in public office who represent the Democratic Party are really representing who you are and/or what you believe? Why, or why not?

What CavWife said.
As far as women in the Dem party I can't think of any I'm terribly impressed by, off the top of my head. Certainly don't care for Pelosi.

OP here, thank you all for your answers. That other question just got me to thinking about what women in the Democratic feel. I don't think that either party really represents the needs of women very well, but at the same time I don't think either party really represents the needs of the average person...period. The average person, male or female, is not being heard by those in Washington, imo. But like CavWife said, it's difficult to meet the needs of such a diverse population. I also agree that the 2 party system is well past it's prime and that's why I'm a Libertarian. Although that party has it's problems as well.
