Essential Estrogen: Six Iowans to serve on Romney steering committee

Excerpted from this post at Essential Estrogen

Six Iowans have been tapped to serve on former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt
Romney's National Faith and Values Steering Committee. Of the six,
only one is female and none of the Iowans will serve as chairs of the
committee. The members are: Kathy Oltmans, Christian activist of
Council Bluffs, Tom Coats, vice president of Truth about Gambling, Joe
Earle, former director of Church and Community Development, Keith
Hunter, member of the board of directors for Iowa Christian Alliance,
State Sen. Dave Johnson, R-Osceola. Of the 50 members of the steering
committee, the campaign has tapped 11 to serve as chairpersons. The 11
leaders hail from Arizona, Indiana, Georgia, New Hampshire, Delaware,
Texas, California, Virginia (two seats) and the District of Columbia
(two seats). Of those key members only one -- former Department of
Justice spokeswoman Barbara Comstock of Virginia -- is female. When
considering the whole list, females hold seven seats or 14 percent.
Besides Comstock and Oltmans, the other women are: Prominent South
Carolina Christian activist Dee Benedict, Author Nancy French of
Tennessee ("Red State of Mind"), Wendy Long of New York, chief counsel
of the Judicial Confirmation Network.
