An article at The New Agenda makes the case that the Democratic and Republican Parties consider women voters to be “expendable and exploitable,” and argues that women’s interests would be better served through third party activism:
both parties seem to have taken all of their constituencies for granted, but women are the most expendable and exploitable . . . if you want to find a political party that genuinely cares about your needs and interests, I recommend you chose a third party . . .
The vast majority of the Green party’s stances on women’s rights, minority rights, homosexual rights, etc., are identical to the Libertarian’s stances that fit under the guideline of increasing/protecting personal freedoms . . . Modern Whigs are the moderate party. Their attitude toward women and other groups is “Government should refrain from legislating morality.” . . .
The wonderful quality of third parties is that they are founded by people who genuinely care about the issues. Because they are new and small, they understand and appreciate the importance of their voters. They will not take the votes of women for granted. Some people think a vote for a third party is a wasted vote, but if all those people vote in third party, then the third party can easily rise to power. I recommend women select a third party, whichever one suits your personal/individual interests, and help that party rise into the national government. They are small and need to be built up at the ground level. The more elected officials they receive locally, the more ballot access they obtain for state and national elections.
