As long as Republicans continue to push for policies that are demeaning, shaming and utterly lacking in compassion, I don’t think efforts like this are likely to be successful. The problem is not that you don’t have enough women candidates. The problem is that even your women politicians show little understanding or interest in issues of economic inequality and income disparity affecting so many women.
When someone like Marsha Blackburn can say with a straight face that women don’t want pay equity laws like the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, they “just want to be recognized,” Republicans are seen as out of touch (and rightfully so).

“I feel like (Democrats) do more for people that are not making good money,” Loretta Lindsey, a retired housekeeper, said in a recent interview on the square in Murfreesboro.
“I feel like there’s more caring on the Democratic side.”
That’s your problem, Republicans. I don’t know how much more obvious it can be.
