Remembering Dotty Lynch

Today, politically minded women mourn the loss of a trailblazer, Dotty Lynch, who passed on Monday August 11th, 2014. The first female political pollster for a presidential candidate, Ms. Lynch brought the voter gap between men and women to the attention of party leaders. Following her political consulting career, she spent many years in journalism as the leading expert on the political opinions of American women. Not only was she revered for her role in highlighting the importance of the female vote, she was widely regarded as the go-to person for mentorship, guidance and connection.  An outpouring of fond remembrances came from the political journalism community, celebrating her generosity and influence. As political women, we owe more gratitude than we can show to the woman who brought our opinions to the forefront.
