This is terrible. It should be against the law for people to vote for just men.

It should also be against the law to make stupid comments, but yet we have them. I have no problem voting for women. Find a qualified woman and see what happens.

I am always amazed at stories like this. This is the year 2010. Are women still being held back by the evil males? Have they not had enough time prove themselves as competent decision makers? Do people really still vote based upon gender?

We had a woman candidate for President of the US two years ago. Women head some of the most powerful corporations in the world. AND they comprise better than 50% of the US population. Heck, we are two generations beyond the acceptance of the feminist movement of the 1960's.

I find it hard to believe that the old stereotypes are still held by anyone, yet I have no clue why women are still saying they are blocked out of the decision making processes. Can anyone educate me on this?

Who said women were complaining? These are facts women are under represented on county boards, it isn't necessarily that they don't get votes from men, in many communities women don't even run. Unfortunately the reality is that there still are good ol'boys out there, not on every board, but the sexist remarks exist, yes it may be hard to believe in 2010, but that is the reality.
