Women Politicians and the Media

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

MANY PEOPLE HAVE HELPED MAKE THIS BOOK A REALITY. IN PARTICULAR, I WANT TO thank Kelley Popham and Kathy Larkin for their persistence in ferreting out evidence. I am grateful to the Freedom Forum for giving me a grant with no strings attached, and to Buck Ryan for supporting my request for unencumbered time to work on this. I also want to thank those who helped arrange interviews with the people in this book, especially Elaine Ryan and Eleanor Lewis, and those who agreed to be interviewed. I am indebted to Pat Matthews and Scoobie Ryan and others who read parts of the manuscript in draft form and made suggestions. I thank also Jane Rossi, Marcia Weinstein at the Kentucky Commission on Women, and the Center for the American Woman and Politics for providing information. I deeply appreciate my family's patience and support, especially my daughter Mia's reminder about what really matters. Finally, without Carmen Manning-Miller's faith that it would happen, this book would not be.
