107. The Democratic Party is the party of women
Most Democratic voters are women. The GOP figured this out a long time ago and have spent the years since Reagan trying to lure women voters away or keep them from turning out to vote.

While not all women have the same values and views on public policy, the Democratic Party's policy strongly reflect women voters POV. In many ways, if you are a Democratic man, the political issues and POV you support often have come from women like Eleanor Roosevelt, Roslyn Carter and others.

To say that women shouldn't use their rights to influence the political agenda, particularly in the Democratic party is folly.
