Inside and outside the political parties, women are the movers and shakers from the local to the national level. They provide the special connection to the voters that have moved the State of Colorado forward in its politics.
It's nice to see leadership of both the Colorado House and Senate side, putting women where they belong -- in charge. Next up, electing Colorado's first ever female governor and senator!
Colorado leads the nation with 41 percent of the state legislature comprised of women. We can be proud of our leadership on women as elected officials, but there are other indicators that should give rise to real concern for the future.
