The Republicans’ ‘War on Women’ seems to have given them exactly what they wished for, a war; from 20 female Senators whom I am sure will make their presence felt in many ways. It is no secret that when women are involved in making decisions that deal with women’s issues, the outcomes are far more advantageous to women than if the traditional sexist old white men made the calls.
There is no way that those stuck up old farts would know the slightest thing about what women go through when faced with excruciating pain or overwhelming odds against their well being. It had become increasingly difficult to watch the old farts propose bill after bill that limited women’s well being, limited their contraceptive options and limited their abortion options.
“Joining the Senate will be Republican Deb Fischer (Neb.) and Democrats Tammy Baldwin (Wis.), Heidi Heitkamp (N.D.), Mazie Hirono (Hawaii) and Elizabeth Warren (Mass.). All six Democratic women up for reelection — Sens. Maria Cantwell (Wash.), Dianne Feinstein (Calif.), Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.), Amy Klobuchar (Minn.), Claire McCaskill (Mo.) and Debbie Stabenow (Mich.) — won their races.
“When women are part of the negotiation and are part of decision-making, the outcomes are just better,” Gillibrand told The Huffington Post last year, discussing the importance of having female representation in the chamber. “When we have our dinners with the women in the Senate — the Democrats and Republicans — we have so much common ground. We agree on so many basic principles and values. I think if there were more women at the decision-making table, we would get more things done.”
For the next two years we will have the best Senate we have ever had, simply because there will be a total of twenty female Senators who will be willing to make the hard choices and decisions that old men seem not to grasp; decisions that cause women to face harm and even death. As a result more women will live and prosper under the watchful eyes of these female Senators, both Democratic and Republican alike.
