Want women to run for Congress? We need someone to watch our kids first.

Updated: Aug 7, 2018

| Washington Post, April 9, 2018, by Liuba Grechen Shirley


I use campaign funds to pay my campaign manager. But what about my babysitter? Along with hundreds of women across the country, I threw my hat in the ring and decided to run for office a few months ago. Just a year ago, I was consulting for nonprofit organizations from home while raising a newborn and a toddler; running for Congress seemed like an impossible task. But after spending a year hearing my representative, Pete King, defend President Trump; watching King vote to take away health care from nearly 74,000 people in our district; and setting up town halls that King refused to attend, I started to think seriously about running. When I finally met with King and he told me he thought town halls “diminished democracy,” I knew I had to run.
