One of the best moments of last week was a gathering of strong women who know that equal representation of women in leadership makes a difference. I support the Win With Women PAC. I grew up when it was legal to beat one's wife and rape was not prosecuted if the "victim was doing anything risky (like walking down the street) because those judgmental housewives on the jury will blame her". True quote from a young prosecutor in Riverside, California in 1974. In 1993 I was supported by older Republican women who remembered the tragedy of botched back alley abortions. And today we are still fighting against equal pay? The progress is real but the work is far from over.
