Essential Estrogen: Women Comprise a Third of Edwards Steering Committee

Excerpted from this post at Essential Estrogen

Iowa women make up one-third of a newly announced committee within the John Edwards for President campaign. "I am pleased to announce today
our campaign's Statewide Steering Committee," Edwards said in a
prepared statement. "They are a widely respected group of leaders from
law enforcement to labor to education. They include elected officials,
party activists, community leaders and others who share my commitment
to real change and are ready to go to work to make it happen." The
list, touted by the campaign as reflecting the "diversity and depth"
of their organizational support in Iowa, contains the names of 74
Democratic party officials and activists -- 24 of them women. Looking
down the list, however, newly aligned supporters are a rarity. That
being said, the Edwards campaign is hardly the first to recycle
supporter names from previous announcements, endorsements and
committee formations.
