Convinced that the gender balance commitment of the Democratic Party is a model for our society as a whole it must be enabled by public financing of campaigns to increase citizenship responsibility and participation and end the present entrapment of our political and economic system by big money interests so obvious in the present republican backlash. Gender balance and public financing of campaigns are her mantra.
