26. Part of the reason

Women in Politics Chair Donna DeWitt says a lot of women are not running for office for the wrong reason. Too many women say they have to many skeletons in the closet, says DeWitt. And Im amazed at that answer from a woman, because its not an issue with men. Its not about skeletons, but about getting the training and confidence you need.

Busting the good ole boy network is not enough if women won't run. I have never heard a woman say she would not vote for so and so because he is a man. On the other hand I have heard some men say they would not vote for a woman. SC elected it's first femal governor in 2010. So at least we have a partial answer. In redder than red state a man will indeed vote for a woman, if she is a republican.


Education has begun, I just it was better advertised.
