Liz Mair, in a blog post on BlogHer, has an interesting reaction to the reaction to all of those Republican women suddenly looking like winners:
…(a) narrative seems to be taking hold in some quarters—that these women aren’t really women, they’re men in skirts. That is so because they a) didn’t emphasize their gender at every turn in the course of their respective primary races or b) don’t focus, or toe the line, on “women’s issues”—or both. In particular, objections have been raised that these women either are not pro-choice or are insufficiently vocal about being pro-choice, and therefore—the subtext seems to be—they’re more akin to men in skirts than “real women.”
Sort of lines up with what Heather has said, in this post.
