Women Lead the Way in 2006 Election 11.13.06

The 2006 election was a watershed for women.  With several races still undecided, women's representation in Congress will likely increase to 16 percent, a record high.  The gender gap was significant in changing the balance of power in the Senate and in the House.  And, in Nancy Pelosi we have the first woman and the first self-identified feminist Speaker of the House in history!

In this round-up of Ms. 2006 election coverage, you'll find results from the Ms. magazine/Women Donors Network election-eve poll, looking at how women voters impacted the election.   Ms. also looked at ballot measures impacting women.  Ms. published an investigative report on how South Dakota 's draconian abortion ban was fought (and defeated soundly) at the ballot box, as well as a feminist guide to the ballot initiatives.
