You would think with a woman as editor, the Joplin Globe would have left sexism behind it a long time ago.
When KZRG's Mark Kinsley announced his candidacy for 129th District state representative, the Globe headlined it "Talk show host begins campaign.'
After attorney Shelly Dreyer made her announcement today, the Globe headline reads, "Woman kicks off run for Missouri House."
Not lawyer, not former municipal judge, but woman. I find it hard to imagine that Mark Kinsley or any other male candidate would be described as "man" in such a headline.
News flash to the Joplin Globe- women run for office and get elected, just like men do.
They even become editors at daily newspapers.
