While women have not yet reached a critical mass in public office, the brightest political stars in Massachusetts happen to be female. Think US Senator Elizabeth Warren and US Representative Katherine Clark; Attorney General Maura Healey and Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito; state Senators Linda Dorcena Forry and Sonia Chang-Diaz; state Representative Keiko Orrall; Boston City Councilors Michelle Wu, Ayanna Pressley, and Andrea Campbell. Quincy City Council president Kirsten Hughes. These women know how to get things done, and they know how to connect with voters. They’re ambitious, and their names keep popping up as candidates for higher office.
