Kentucky Journal of Politics & Issues, March 1993
Kentucky Journal of Politics & Issues, March 1993

Way back in the early 1990s, we published a subscription only newsjournal, Kentucky Journal of Politics & Issues.

We are republishing tidbits from the edition that we called "1992 Year of Women Misses Kentucky." In light of EmergeKentucky successes last week at the polls, the discussions taking place after the murders in Santa Barbara and the role of women in media, it's a good time to take a look back into the recent past.

Comment on Kentucky - so far the score is Guys 85 - Gals 14

...Beginning with the May 13, 2013 show, there were 167 guest appearances on Comment on Kentucky. Of those 167 guest appearances, 143 were male and 24 were women. That works out to 85.6% of the guest journalists being male and 14.3% being female.

Normally, only hard core political operatives, media, and political party volunteers attend Fancy Farm. In past years, a good crowd would be on the side of 10,000. Experts predict that upward of 20,000 will attend the 2014 Fancy Farm Picnic.

News power hitters such as FOX, CNN, NBC, ABC, Rutgers, AP, BBC, are expected to send news crews..

What Do Women Want - March 1993 Kentucky Journal of Politics & Issues Editorial

(Frankfort, March 1993) - Studying the depressing statistics on the number of women in elected office in Kentucky, the question of why so few women seek political office was discussed endlessly around the editorial table...

...Even though one person dare not speak for that large class of under-represented citizens, this writer has over forty years* more experience asking what women want than most editorial writers. A member of the class, reared by strong women, taught by women, befriended by women and working with women, this writer has her own personal want list for all.

Editor's Note: What follows are ten things that women wanted in 1993 - the reader can judge how much those wants have changed in 20+ years.
