More women than men belong to the tea party movement—55 percent, according to the latest Quinnipiac poll. “While no movement that uses Michelle Malkin as a poster girl could fairly be described as feminist, the party has become an insta-network for ambitious women,” writes Hanna Rosin. “Some are aspiring candidates who could never get traction within the tight, local Republican Party networks.
