What Does This Election Mean to Me?
I found a place to sit on a windowsill in the packed chamber of the House of Representatives as I waited for the inauguration of the first woman to be the Governor of Vermont. A small orchestra played a Suite from Handel’s “Water Music” as she entered the chamber wearing a bright white business suit in 1984. I first met Madeleine Kunin ten years earlier when I attended a meeting of the Vermont Women’s Political Caucus. She ran for the House of Representatives, then Lt. Governor, and in 1982, she ran for Governor.
