We Make More Effective Congresspeople (When We Manage to Get Elected)

Regardless of party affiliation, congressional women deliver more federal projects to their home districts and sponsor and co-sponsor more legislation than their male colleagues. In a study that was recently published in The American Journal of Political Science, researchers from Stanford University and the University of Chicago attributed women's political success not to some innate political instinct but to the fact that it's really hard for us to get elected (there are currently 360 men and 75 women in the House; 83 men and 17 women in the Senate). They theorize that women feel immense pressure to measure up, so instead of meeting expectations, we surpass them.


Female Politicians Are “Female Force” in new comic book series

BY IN Featured, Historical Icons On 03-07-2011

Bluewater Productions brings a diverse library of titles and talent to the table in comic book series.  With stories that range from classic myths, science fiction and superheroes to Hollywood legends such as William Shatner, Roger Corman, Ray Harryhausen and Vincent Price, Bluewater is a fresh voice in comic publishing.

With women making effective impacts in the world of politics the comic book company has turned its focus to biography comics and finds power in the stories of some of our strongest female political leaders in their new series called FEMALE FORCE.  The new series is designed to examine influential women who are making and shaping modern history.  Bluewater Productions Vice President, Jason Shultz says, “These are very strong independent women that people want to know more about, and what better to teach younger kids about these role models than through comic books.”

The collected life stories of Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama, Sarah Palin, and Caroline Kennedy are now available in a broad examination of strong women in politics. The Female Force series doesn’t limit itself to politics. Royal humanitarian and activist Princess Diana and media superstars Oprah Winfrey and Barbara Walters are set to also grace covers.

The “Female Force” series was recently featured on “Live with Regis and Kelly”, CNN, MSNBC and Fox News, and in People magazine, Chicago Tribune, USA Today and thousands of other media outlets.
