American politics is changing, and not always in wholesome ways. But this one, if it can be sustained, augurs well for the country: In numbers never seen before, women are suiting up to campaign for public office. It’s no secret that high office had long been the province of men. Even today, well into the 21st century, women’s numbers in Congress don’t come close to matching their share of the population. As of last June, only 84 of the 535 members of the House of Representatives were women and only 20 of the 100 senators. Each represents about – or exactly – 20 percent of their chamber. It’s not much better in Albany. There, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures, women comprise 27.7 percent of the two chambers, with 45 in the Assembly and 14 in the Senate. In the Senate, Catharine Young, of Olean, chairs the Senate Republican Campaign Committee and is passionate expanding government to include more women. The only woman in … [Read more...] about Editorial: Women are stepping up in politics
By Molly Ball April 12, 2018 Amber Spradlin tolerated the indignities of public-school teaching for 13 years, but now she has had enough. “We have tried so many different things, so many different avenues, to advocate for our students,” she says. “Finally, we were saying, ‘We’re not going to take this anymore.'” Spradlin, a sixth-grade English teacher in Choctaw, Okla., was at the state capitol in Oklahoma City on April 9, missing her sixth day of work in order to demand more school funding. She’s part of a wave of teacher actions that has lately swept Republican-led states, as well as an example of this moment’s political archetype: a woman who is fed up and ready to do something about it. Fed-up women have been driving the political cycle since November 2016. The January 2017 Women’s March is believed to have been the largest single-day protest in U.S. history. Record numbers of women are running for office, with many citing … [Read more...] about Fed-Up Women Are Changing American Politics
Bangor By Callie Ferguson, BDN Staff • April 12, 2018 12:04 pm A former Bangor teacher accused of secretly filming up women’s skirts pleaded not guilty last month to 10 misdemeanor counts of invasion of privacy, according to court documents. Benjamin Emmott, 30, entered the not guilty plea on March 22 through his lawyer, Portland-based attorney Jonathan Goodman. It was filed in Bangor district court on April 11. Emmott was initially charged on March 9 with seven counts of violation of privacy, but three have since been added as the police continue to investigate him. Emmott violated the privacy of at least six women on 10 occasions when he used a camera to film under their clothing without their knowledge in locations around Bangor, according to police and court documents. His attorney said the plea is a procedural step and not necessarily a denial of the allegations. “It’s my standard practice to enter an not guilty plea at the arraignment and then spend … [Read more...] about Ex-Bangor teacher accused of filming up women’s skirts pleads not guilty
