Contributing author in the book 51%: Women and the Future of Politics with, The Enlightened Middle Majority: Why "The Sides" are Alienating Us.
Excerpt: [Religious freedom] ... is the very foundation on which this country was built. We still don't want anyone to tell us whom we must worship, where we must worship, or if we have to worship at all, nor do we wish to stop anyone who wants to do so. Freedom of religion must also mean freedom from religion, and religious doctrines simply cannot enter into a political discussion of our rights as Americans. I believe in God. But I don't want anyone to tell me that I have to.
...Women hold treasures far more valuable than brute strength: flexibility, common sense, diplomacy, the ability to multi-task and keep entire families together, to balance and stay within budgets, to go Momma Bear, Tiger Mom, and even Hockey Mom and fight to the death for our clan when we must. We do this while our men-folk bump chests, bully and bluster, and attempt to bend the world with their military prowess.
The entire problem both parties have can be summed up in these few words: They underestimate us. Women are cut open or ripped open to give birth; we survive rape, breast cancer, poverty, and oppression; and we possess strength beyond their imagination.
Women understand this about our gender. We live it. We keep it close and we keep it quiet in order to keep peace, exercising it only when we must. Well, my sisters, we must.
Whether we lean to the right or to the left, we can no longer afford to just hold our collective breaths and hope for the best. We must act now. We must be willing to mix it up with the boys and spar a little, to stand up and let our altos and sopranos and our keyboards be heard. We are the 51%. We are the Enlightened Middle Majority. We are the future of politics, of our nation's success, and of the very continuation of our race.
Women can no longer afford to be silent. Those of us who have never before considered ourselves activists have no choice but to stand up and be heard, and we must be counted. We must tell the politicians of this election cycle and all those to come that we are paying attention, and that we will not be ignored.
