First Women to Chair the National Governors Association are Pro-Choice
Perhaps the tide is slowly changing.
Pro-choice women continue to make history: in addition to welcoming Nancy Pelosi as the first female Speaker of the House, Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius and Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano will become the first women to chair the Democratic Governors Association and National Governors Association, respectively. Both women are strong pro-choice leaders, and both celebrated election victories on November 7 in so-called "red" states. Gov. Napolitano, the first female governor of Arizona, won a second term with nearly two-thirds of the vote, and Gov. Sebelius won 58 percent of the vote for a second term in Kansas.
