Little Womens Needs Help Makin' Decisions

Seriously. This is the co-chair of the RNC (Jan Larimer), on why the Republicans have trouble recruiting women candidates (via PoliticalWire):

Women sometimes need a little more handholding, or they need their friends to help them make a decision. And by our going in and talking to them and recruiting and educating and training them to either get involved in a campaign or become a candidate, we’re giving them the tools so that they can do that on their own.

I do not think you are having trouble for the same reason you think you are having trouble.
