Becoming a Congress Mom
2018 Kentucky congressional candidate Amy McGrath reflects on the prejudices facing mothers who run for public office.
AMY MCGRATH: As a woman, it's always interesting to me to get the comment of, you know, how are you doing this with children and, you sure you want that job in Congress because you'll be away from your children? And I often want to ask them, would you be asking that of a man? And I just feel like, my kids are going to be OK, especially if they know their mother is doing something she loves, something that's important, and something that they can be proud of later on.
