There a lot of talk lately about female political candidates. Women in office. Women thinking of running for office.
Occasionally we hear their stance on the issues, but usually all we hear is noise. As of late it’s been about their Facebook escapades, the names they have been called, or their college religious preferences.
And now we have women on the left arguing with women on the right over who’s doing a better job standing up for females in the political arena.
Essentially, we’re having a nice, male-style, pissing match.
I have a better idea.
Let’s work together.
Clearly none of us get along. Clearly we couldn’t be further apart on policy, preferences and patience. But we do agree that the treatment of women in the media and by campaigns as we head into November could use some help.
On this we agree.
Let’s use it.
You don’t have to abort a fetus and I don’t have to let my neighbor’s house burn down. You don’t have to give away your money to the poor and I don’t have to suck up to big corporations.
We just have to continue to call out the sexism we see as we do our thing.
And keep everyone focused on the issues.
