You know it. Clearly, the difference is because women’s specific rights and interests are not protected otherwise.

When women become legislators they:

1) Are more actively involved and advocate more in gender-salient issues: women’s health, reproductive rights, childcare and the economy (yes, that’s a women’s issue, too)
2) Are more responsive to constituents
3) Are more focused on cooperation, less on the hierarchy
4) Understand what “transvaginal” means.


Women are sick of the misogyny, the boys club, slashing of education. lack of healthcare, single-parent families struggle AND...maybe, just maybe, it will be women and children that bring down Trump. Wouldn't that be a kick in the pants??

We've done that in 2016. And, uh..... Yeah.

A Record Number of Women Have Filed to Run for U.S. House Seats, Most of Them as Democrats

Today 12:40am

No doubt encouraged by our heinous, misogynist leadership, a record-breaking number of women have filed candidacy papers to run for United States House of Representatives seats in the upcoming midterm elections.

The Associated Press reported on Thursday that 309 women across the United States have filed to run, beating out the previous record of 298, which was set during the 2012 election. And, more good news: so far Democratic women candidates running in the 2018 election cycle outnumber Republican women candidates 3-to-1, which is the highest ratio recorded in a congressional election year dating back to 1992, according to Mother Jones.

.....

And a lot of them are going to win. It appears many members of the male persuasion, have forgotten about that woman's march last year right after the orange ass clowns swearing in. The girls didn't.
Thanks from iolo and Lyzza

Ok. Sometimes there is no difference between men and women and sometimes there is. Clearly in this case there is. Wouldn't this be anti science?

This postmodernist stuff is confusing.

The way you should have phrased it is that we should send statesmen (m/f) rather than politicians to govern.

@Clara, Sabcat, Lyzza, others

I think we should have a separate Thread about this. Anyone game?

It is time we embrace feminism and women's movements and allow the Marxism within the movement to flourish. This is great news and should be encouraged.
