Here at MPS, we have long maintained that there is a War on Women, and oddly it has mostly been waged by men (and the Phyllis Schlaflys of the world). Go figure. Anyway, we’ve learned that there is a Rebel Alliance taking strategic aim at the men’s, um, seat of power, so to speak.
This tracker at Politico is really amazing, and proves to me that the Skirts are hoppin’ mad and are doin’ it for themselves.
Here’s what we can discern from the Politico numbers: it is a Year of the Women!
- 183 Women have already won their primaries
- 182 Women are still waiting for their primaries
- 227 Women have already lost or dropped out
That means an astonishing 592 women are running for office (local and federal) in the 2018 Pie Fight! And if all of them win (I know: statistically unpossible), there really might be better gender representation across the country. The Senate could jump from 23 to 32 women senators, and the House could rise from 84 women to an amazing 241 women representatives.
Sweet Jeebus, I hope it happens. My gender has had a long go of it and truly eff’ed things up. I don’t think a lot of the cads running things right now understand the moment we are in.
So, you know, a woman’s place is in the House (and Senate).
