Vote Female (Or You Are Insecure)
To the Editor
On the ballot Nov. 8th throughout Delaware county, five females are running for State Representative, a female is running for President, a female is running for US Senate and one is running for Congress. That’s incredible ! What progress, right ? Maybe progress in Pennsylvania but we are still way behind. There is a higher percentage of female lawmakers in Afghanistan than there are in Pennsylvania. There are more than 75 countries that have a higher percentage of female lawmakers than the US. Why is that ? Is it because many American men fear voting for strong females ? When I hear all the comments or read all the e/mails from men about females running for public office, I realize how insecure these guys are with females who are strong and assertive. I personally believe we need more women in government. After all females compromise of more than 50% of our population. Most females can multi-task, get things done and still be great wives and mothers. I reject all the male-chauvinistic statements and e/mail chain-letters about how weak females will be if elected to public office. So to my male friends, if you ever loved a mom, a wife, a sister or a daughter, try to be patient and don’t be afraid to support females that are running for office. I strongly believe if we had more women in government, maybe we would have political harmony in our Country and less wars throughout the world. Relax guys, its their time now.
