Over the past four years, I’ve found it hard to breathe again. We’ve been dealing with everything women have been dealing with on a national level, but we’ve had our own nightmares closer to home, too. While the entire country reeled from the presidential election, the Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court confirmation
, the immigration bans, and the detainment of children at the border, so did we. But we also had to deal with Roy Moore
and everyone in this state who vehemently supported him. And like most other states, we found hope in the many fantastic women candidates who ran for office
, but for numerous reasons — mostly due to lack of financial and strategic support
— none of them won like they did in other states.
