  • The 2018 midterms were huge for women candidates. Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjOThe 2018 midterms were historic for women candidates. A total of 273 candidates were on the ballot, representing both parties. But even with this influx of women, they’re still way underrepresented in the US government. And that underrepresentation has very real policy consequences.

    Note: Ayanna Pressley from Massachusetts and Jahana Hayes from Connecticut are the first black women elected to congress from New England. We mistakenly left out Hayes. We regret the oversight.

    It appears to me that this channel, or perhaps a large section of the American electorate, is more obsessed with candidates' characteristics, such as their sex and skin colour, rather than their merits. Identity politics get more coverage that I see, although not a U.S. citizen, than the media, talking about candidates' histories, education, and plans for the future.

    @SN Project You're asking to trust that someone is qualified for a position just because of their sex, you understand how absurd that is?. Sex is not a good qualification for a position. Otherwise you've just justified centuries of sexism against women because men used the same metric to keep women out of Universities, Politics. workplace ectLet me ask you a simple question. If you had a brain tumor, would you choose your surgeon based on experience and qualifications (degrees, achievements ect) o...

    @The Rambler Well the point is that you're just distrusting that the people think her to be qualified?It's a complete disavowment of that credibility at a slight of bias, but you're not realizing that biases like that are absolutely everywhere.Your stance confuses me because at the end of the day, doesn't how you define yourself also define how you view the world? Like, don't male Christian senators like to bring up how they're good Christian family men when talking about themselves? Isn't that ex...

    Your grasp of facts is quite unusual. I made a statement about how voting and the draft happened. You refute it by providing more specific facts which fit perfectly with the statement I had made, while saying that I was mistaken.This, along with your repeated statements about Mary I are quite odd.And I also find it odd that you have this critical view toward women feminists in the priorities they organized around. If you know the exact timeline of when the draft was ended, then you may also know...

    I judge politicians on how well they do when in office, not their gender or skin color.

    I am not voting for someone, because of their gender, race, or age.I am voting for that person, because of their ideas/ beliefs.
