Former Republican Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch and Erin Forrest, executive director of Emerge Wisconsin, which trains and supports Democratic WOMEN looking to run for elected office, dont have lot of opinions in common when it comes to politics. But they are both in position of recruiting WOMEN candidates for 2020 elections and they are both optimistic about women's chances of winning legislative seats when they look at crew who will likely be on ballot after June 1 filing deadline hits next week. Here is another thing they agree on: Wisconsin has led nation on women's suffrage, but now has dismal record on WOMEN in political leadership. On Thursday, WisPolitics President Jeff Mayers moderated online talk between two prominent WOMEN in Wisconsin politics as part of WisPolitics lunch series that in non-pandemic times takes place in person. Mayers open with this statistic from his spot in front of fireplace: in 1975, about 8 percentage of Wisconsin legislature had female membership. And today it is 27 percentage , but there really has been much in way of gain since about 1983. Forrest add few more statistics demonstrating inequality with her reply. We are ranked 30, I think, for State nationwide, begin Forrest. But thing people dont think about lot is that in history of Wisconsin, we have elected three WOMEN to federal office and that if you count Tammy Baldwin twice. Because Tammy Baldwin and Gwen Moore are only WOMEN weve ever elected to federal office, and theyre both still serving. That creates challenges inspiring WOMEN to run because State is just now experiencing history of WOMEN in those positions and way to get more WOMEN into politics is to have successful examples they can emulate. For Kleefisch, this brought to mind personal example. Her husband is former Rep. Joel Kleefisch, who served in State Assembly for 14 years. When he to step down in 2018, she helped recruit his successor. My first thought was woman who runs terrific special needs ministry from our church, Barbara Dittrich, say Kleefisch. But you know, there are barriers sometimes to convincing WOMEN to run for and serve in political office, and one of things was thing that Barb brought up very first: What about my family? Kleefisches talked Dittrich through that. We were able to work through those barriers and convince her that this would be really great way to not only serve her family, but her community and her state and country. And sure enough, I am now able call my friend Barb, my State representative.

Brief her-story in Wisconsin politics

WISCONSIN ranks third among States in coronavirus infections per capita as of Oct. 27, TO tracking by NEW YORK TIMES. WISCONSIN trail only Texas, Illinois and California in total infections over past week, despite having fraction of those states ' populations. Prolonged surge IS rendering contact tracers unable TO warn everyone who may have been exposed TO virus, and IT IS overwhelming Hospitals with COVID-19 patients enough TO prompt Evers TO open field Hospital on grounds OF WISCONSIN State Fair Park in West Allis. Our nurses, Health Care staff and physicians ARE working long, frankly, emotionally exhausting hours on frontlines caring for COVID patients and putting their OWN Health and Safety in Evers said AT Oct. 22 Press briefing. Make NO mistake about this: this IS urgent crisis. Positive data Point amid Some 5. 6 million Wisconsinites have yet TO test positive for COVID-19, most can avoid disease by TAKING simple precautions. You can stop COVID spread with enough precautions and enough buy-IN FROM EVERYBODY, says Ajay Sethi, PROFESSOR AT UW-Madison and OF ITS Master OF Public Health PROGRAM. Fundamentals FOR Responding To Viruses With NO Vaccine Or Cure Have Changed LITTLE Over Century. WISCONSIN, in fact, was only State in 1918 to confront misnamed Spanish flu with uniform shutdown measures, which historians credit with limiting casualties FROM virus that killed estimated 675 000 Americans. Milwaukee was among NATIONS top CITIES in minimizing flu casualties, thanks in part to City Health George Ruhland. He built multi-partisan political coalition that gained broad support for mask wearing and other precautions, according to Steven Burg, PROFESSOR OF HISTORY AT Shippensburg University in Pennsylvania, who is author of HISTORY OF WISCONSINS response TO 1918 pandemic. Successful Public Health interventions often pair mandates with campaigns, Brossard say. They include widely successful US campaign TO encourage PEOPLE TO quit using cancer-causing tobacco products. NATIONAL quitline complement bans tobacco sales TO younger PEOPLE and local ordinances banning smoking indoors. Result: 67 percentage decline in US cigarette smoking since 1965. Sethi says UW-Madison exemplifies local model of success FOR curbing COVID-19. Following massive outbreak in September as students returned FOR fall semester, administrators enacted sweeping restrictions, including temporarily moving classes online, ordering students into two dormitories TO quarantine and frequently testing students FOR virus. Infections have since plummet, playing out on other campuses nationwide. Experts say stricter punishments for rule-breakers May BE prompt more students to take precautions, but luck may also play role, along with clear communication. Here AT UW-Madison campus there IS probably lot more cooperation compared TO when you get TO larger scale where you have more voices, more diverse opinions and many more channels OF Communication, Sethi say.

The gender divide of partisanship

Gender Gap Began Emerging As Major Force In Presidential Elections In 1980, When Ronald Reagan Won With Support From 47 Percent Of Women. Slim Majority Of Women Have Backed Democratic Candidate In Every Election Since 1996, And Size Of Gender Gap Has Hovered Within Narrow Range: On Average, Women Have Been Eight Percentage Points More Likely Than Men To Support Democratic Candidate In Elections Since 1980, According To Pew Research Center. Some political scientists were reluctant to draw clear findings from exit poll data, because of some inconsistency in different exit polls and concerns that corrections due to coronavirus pandemic and shift to mail-in ballots may have lead to problematic numbers. For example, polls conducted by Edison Research show that college-educate White women and White men were split fairly evenly between Biden and Trump, while other polling services show this group of leaning toward Biden. But Wolbrecht said she was interested in seeing some preliminary exit polling suggesting that while majority of White women without college degrees continue to back Trump, small percentage move toward Biden. She hypothesize that this may have been result of economic recession amid pandemic, which has fallen hardest on women and mothers overburdened by child-care roles and overrepresented in industries such as retail and hospitality. Similar economic factors may help explain gender gaps among people of color, said Celeste Montoya, associate professor in Department of Women and Gender Studies at University of Colorado Boulder. She argues that gender gaps in among Latinos are not because of cultural reasons, such as narrative around Latino men and machismo. Instead, she would like to see more research about impact of employment patterns on gender voting gaps in Latino communities.
