Legislators and politicians : Iowa's women lawmakers by Suzanne O'Dea( Book )

5 editions published between 1992 and 1995 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Historically, men have dominated Iowa's political climate. Men drafted Iowa's constitutions, created and instituted Iowa's laws, and for years had sole access to Iowa's ballot boxes. But in 1928, a radical change occurred in Iowa politics: voters in Jackson County elected Carolyn Pendray, the first woman ever to serve in the Iowa House of Representatives."--BOOK JACKET. "In the years following Pendray's election, other Iowa women have chosen to challenge the status quo and pursue a political career. Despite the numerous obstacles they encountered in a male-dominated system, these women politicians have shaped and defined state law through their hard work and dedication. Legislators and Politicians collects the stories of these dynamic, resourceful women. Told through a combination of interviews, newspaper articles, and personal writings, these accounts convey the varied experiences of Iowa's women politicians: their courage, humor, frustrations, and determination."--BOOK JACKET

Seventy-seven women have served in the Iowa General Assembly since the election of the first woman in 1928. Iowa's women legislators represent a broad range of political beliefs, wealth, education, and personal backgrounds. The diversity among them extends to their political styles and the issues they supported and opposed.;Before their candidacies these lawmakers generally lived traditional women's lives and participated in their communities' activities and organizations. They often became candidates to fill their parties' tickets but some ran because they believed that they had specific contributions to make to the formulation of state policy.;Through the issues they raised, the bills they sponsored, and the ways that they voted, Iowa women legislators have influenced almost every aspect of state policy. Their contributions to state policies rest primarily in the perspectives that they added to it. They added new dimensions to the debates and expanded the issues considered as policies were formulated
