What Next for Women's Marchers?
That's a question being widely asked. A modest suggestion: if one out of every hundred marchers is inspired to seek elective office in the next election cycle, whether local, state, or federal office, and half of the marchers work to support such candidates, they'd make a major increase in the number of women in office. (Looks like about 2,000 women in state and federal office; if a million marched today that's 10,000 candidates, assume a quarter win that's 2,500.)
