The enthusiastic news from the San Francisco Chronicle is that 30% of CA legislators are women.

Yeah, but according the 2000 census, the state population of CA is 50% female. Whatever happened to no taxation without (equal) representation?

And why doesn't the 1850-sounding Chron headline, ('Gentlewomen' now common in the Senate) read more truthfully, like, oh, say the news from Brazil (Women marginalized from politics)?
