Essential Estrogen: Greenwald: More important to serve Iowa than to be first woman

Excerpted from this post at Essential Estrogen

Hollywood may have thought it plausible fifty years ago, but, to date,
fictional Iowa Congresswoman Phoebe Frost continues to stand alone.
"It was a couple of years ago when I got up and turned on the
television," remembered Becky Greenwald, Democratic candidate for
Iowa's 4th Congressional District. "The set was on one of those old
movie stations and I began to watch this movie, directed by Billy
Wilder, from the late 1940s -- "A Foreign Affair" -- that featured a
young Iowa congresswoman who goes to Berlin to investigate something
just after World War II. I just thought, 'Oh, my gosh!' If Hollywood
thought it was possible in the late 40s, I guess we better get with
it."
