#4 Best: Our 23 Endorsed Women in the State House and Senate: The Georgia’s WIN List endorsed women in the House and Senate bravely and tirelessly work to protect the rights and interests of women and families in our state. As Minority House Leader (and WIN List endorsed woman) Stacey Abrams says, “We are here to stop the bad.” And for that, they deserve our undying gratitude…and support!

#4 Worst:The GOP Males in the Georgia Legislature Don’t Relate to Women…or just don’t care to. Our endorsed woman, House Representative Stacey Evans bemoaned the continued lack of respect for women by the GOP in Georgia. “The Republicans really need a “how to talk about women 101” course,” says Stacey. Just ask Phi Beta Kappa lawyer and former House Rep Elena Parent who was recently called a “legislative Barbie” by GOP- leaning Peach Pundit. (Mike Luckovich’s cartoon below says it all)!

Happy Holidays & here are the fourth listings for the TOP TEN BEST AND WORST FOR GEORGIA WOMEN IN 2013. We’ll publish the whole list on December 31. See below for items 1-3 and here is today’s #4

 

This is day three of our top ten countdown. We’ll publish the whole list on Dec. 30. See below for the earlier number one & two for best and worst.

Nancy Denson Mayor-Jackson teresa-tomlinson5#3 Best: The Women Mayors of Georgia: While our state government ranks among the lowest in female leadership, many of the towns and cities of Georgia are leading the way to true progress. Nancy Denson in Athens, Edna Jackson in Savannah and Teresa Tomlinson in Columbus are demonstrating that women are effective, strong political leaders at the highest levels.

#3 Worst: Georgia’s Maternal Morbidity is the Worst in the Nation: This astonishing statistic topped House Representative Pat Gardener’s “worst” list. Beating states with much higher rates of poverty, Georgia loses almost twenty-one women each year to childbirth-related death. Do you see a relationship between the failure to launch Medicaid expansion and this statistic Governor Deal?

This is day two of our top ten countdown. We’ll publish the whole list on Dec. 30. See below for yesterdays and here is today’s:

#2 Best: Jason Carter’s Gubernatorial Campaign: Jason, a long-time supporter and member of MEN FOR WIN is the kind of progressive man who understands that women are equal partners in the political process, not Barbie dolls. He will be a Georgia governor that we can all believe in!

#2 Worst: Deal’s Failure to Launch Medicaid: As State Senator Nan Orrock says, “It’s bad news for women that our Governor has failed to expand Medicaid in our state. It would bring in $30 billion in federal dollars, create 70,000 jobs over the next ten years, and provide health insurance to more than 600,000 uninsured Georgians…. more than half of whom are women.”
