I happened to be scrolling through Twitter last night and saw a video about Senator Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) speaking about her recent divorce filing.
When I think of Senator Joni Ernst, I think of one of our strong Republican women who occasionally pops up in the news. I seem to always go back to the word strong with so many women. It’s an adjective I can place in front of pretty much any female politician because the attacks on women are way more personal than attacks on men. Women have to enter politics with a thick skin and solid backbone. We see media attacking women for what they wore or their hairstyles, but with Republican women, their intellect is constantly called into question because they dared to think differently than what the mainstream media believes they should.
