Essential Estrogen: Iowa women, let's give Joy Corning a big round of applause

Excerpted from this post at Essential Estrogen

Some Iowa households received an automated phone call this week that
featured the familiar voice of former Lt. Gov. Joy Corning: In the
call, which is paid for by One Iowa, Corning reminds Iowans of the
state's history of being open-minded and fair, and requests that other
residents join her in ensuring that the civil rights of all are
protected, and that the state "continues to move forward as a leader
in fairness and equality." Corning, an Iowa native, has a long
political history in this state and has been a role model for many
women. She served as a senator in the state legislature, the first
woman ever elected to serve in that chamber, representing a district
in Black Hawk County. She was the president of the Cedar Falls School
Board. She was also the director of the Iowa Housing Finance Authority
during the early 1980s.
