Four female U.S. military veterans are running for Congress EXCERPT Four female veterans are making history by running for Congress this year. While women make up more than 50% of the population, they are severely underrepresented in public office. It’s about time that started changing. Women bring a different perspective to political office, and they tend to focus on solving problems. Research has also shown that “women tend to include diverse viewpoints in decision making, have a broader conception of public policy, and are also more likely to work through differences to form coalitions, complete objectives, and bring disenfranchised communities to the table.” http://battleland.blogs.time.com/2012/03/21/a-new-kind-of-pt-female-vets-running-for-congress/#ixzz1plP9UB4R -- Sarah Weinstein MPhil Candidate School of International Relations University of St Andrews Still haven't registered to review books? http://www.h-net.org/~minerva/review.html
