94th Anniversary Of 19th Amendment

Today is the 94th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote. Did you know that in Idaho today more women are likely to vote than men? We still do not have any women elected to statewide office, though. Will you help me change that statistic on November 4th? I’ll need your vote! -- state Rep. Holli Woodings, D-Boise, candidate for secretary of state, via Facebook. Story here.

Question: Why, if voting women outnumber men, are there no women holding a statewide Idaho executive or congressional office?
