A giant among us passed this week: Dawn Clark Netsch, friend and hero to so many.
There have been many terrific tributes. I’ve posted a lot of them on my Facebook page. There are also a lot of as yet publicly-untold stories friends have shared all week. (Perhaps, I’ll start sharing them here.)
Here, in a piece entitled: “Why Are There So Few Women Governors,” by Carol Felsenthal, Dawn’s groundbreaking career is captured in the largest possible context: why do so few political women have (all-caps-merited’) EXECUTIVE POWER?
Yes, more women need to run for office, and, yes, more women in government’s decision making rooms will matter, but what will matter most to our future is having more women in positions to make executive decisions.
I recommend Carol’s piece to you and ask you to share it.
