What diversity? Maryland isn’t electing women to Congress | READER COMMENTARY

Recent commentary praising the midterm election’s success at diversity seems to be less than truthful (”Charles M. Blow: Unapologetic Black power in the South,” Dec. 14).

No one asked me, but I ask the question as to how many women were elected to the U.S. Congress this election cycle — or the last one for that matter? Seems as though women continue to come up short as far as to their value in representing Marylanders in Congress. Most other states do a much better job!
