NeW Meets Sen. Dole

July 23, 2008 | NeW Staff

Yesterday, some of the NeW ladies had the opportunity to meet Sen. Elizabeth Dole.  What a great afternoon!  She is one of the few conservative female Senators.  There are not many in the House either.  I have often wondered (and actually wrote a paper) about this question–how do we explain the low number of culturally conservative women elected to high national office?  Choice?  Or is there something in conservatism that is restricting?  After my research, I am confident that the answer lies more in choice.  People have to prioritize work and family–it is not always easy, but it is a decision that has to be made.  What do you think?
