Some women agree with Reimer, not Palin

September 28, 2010

Frances Gast does not speak for me ("Most women agree with Palin," Readers respond, Sept. 28). How she can presume that most women are conservative is beyond the pale.

I don't know when the word "liberal" became anathema, but "liberal" can also imply "expansive."

I enjoy Susan Reimer's column. She consistently produces thought provoking and entertaining work. There aren't enough women candidates out there with the intellectual gravitas of Hillary Clinton. I wish there were more women candidates period, but the climate in this country still has a distinct misogynist slant. The USA is quite provincial in that regard, despite its protestations to the contrary.

We need more women in politics, even the Sarah Palins. But I wouldn't vote for her. What have conservatives done for women? Not a whole heck of a lot.
