GOP Women Vote to Slam Glass Ceiling Shut Behind Them Great news, fans of supergroups. The twenty-four Republican women in the US House of Representatives have joined forces to form the Women's Policy Committee, a group that's supposed to raise the profile of the conservative ladies serving in Congress. Too bad that Team Awesome has spent most of its Girl Power Time in Congress standing staunchly against bills that would benefit other women.

...(OK, not completely tech, however) ... some Republican Women have apparently had it with the GOP WAR ON WOMEN ....
Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) "If you don't feel this is an attack, you need to go home and talk to your wife & your daughters." Murkowski, however, voted for the Blunt Amendment which would have allowed employers to refuse to cover contraception or any other health service for moral reasons. She later regretted her vote & wouldn't do it again. She will continue to support funding for Planned Parenthood, adding that the courts have affirmed a legal right to an abortion & she stands by that.

Jeannette Pickering Rankin, the first woman ever elected to Congress. An amazing women even if you disagree with her pacifist views or her votes against war. It took a lot of guts to stand strong on what she believed. Her fights for women's rights before being elected and as a Republican congresswoman deserve recognition.
