One of my friends is looking up female representatives, so i'll answer some of the other questions, as best as a male can!

2. General Attitude to politics - there is a saying where I live - "There are two things you should never talk about : politics and religion". Besides that attitude, people in my area seem quite political - watching the news often and keeping track of the presidential race. On the other hand, I'm not very concerned with it. Women at my school seem more concerned with politics than men do.

3. Do political groups do enough to encourage females?

No, because they really don't do anything to encourage female participation. I think Bill Clinton's wife - Hillary Clinton - has a chance at getting into higher politics.

As for the survey - it depends on what it is - send it to my email (jonpina@yahoo.com) and i'll take a look at it.

Good luck!

2. WHAT IS THE GENERAL ATTITUDES TO POLITICS IN YOUR AREA????????

The general attitude towards politics in our area is fairly good, albet very competitive. Many women participate in them, by voting as well as running for different offices.

Many girls in my highschool participate in politics as we get older, especially if you take our Government/ Economy class. Which is required for our senior students.

3. DO YOU THINK AMERICAN POLITICAL PARTIES DO ENOUGH TO ENCOURAGE HIGHER FEMALE REPRESENTATION????????

No I do not beleive they do enough to promote female involvement on the campaign front. There are many many women voters, in fact in the last election more women voted then men, but not many women run for offices, that is a male dominated area. And alot of times the women politicians are not taken as seriously as the male ones.

WOULD ANYONE BE WILLING TO CONDUCT A SURVEY ON MY BEHALF?????????

If you can send me the survey that you need conducted I'd be happy to put it out there for you and get some answers. My e-mail is:

I found an interesting story on the BBC website about women voters in the US. As many as 60 per cent of undecided voters are women. You can read the story here:
