New Jersey Republican women are breathing life into the party

In a world that is suffering from toxic masculinity, the only cure is to empower more women and give them a chance to use their abilities for the betterment of our nation. America doesn’t have a shortage of females with exceptional skills and phenomenal leadership capacities, in spite of being underrepresented in the field of governance. 

The Republican Party also has a lot to offer in this regard, it is just unfortunate that the GOP is being pictured as a male-dominated organization that is led by misogynists. This kind of stereotyping proves that the detractors of the Grand Old Party are the true bigots in this country. However, the public can be forgiven if they’re still not aware of the amazing Republican women who are set to make some waves in the scene, as some of them are still young. Besides, the old men of the party are still totally in charge of things.

Recently, a number of Republican women from the Democrat-dominated state of New Jersey are trying their best to breathe life back into the GOP by eradicating the sexism that has permeated the party.

“The Republican Party is in a battle for its soul. If (women) walk away from it, then there is sort of no hope for the centering of the party,” said Debbie Walsh, director of the Center for American Women and Politics at Rutgers University.

Katie Cericola, a 27-year old former Seton Hall University cheerleader, is tired of seeing Republican women not having a voice loud enough to express their political views. 

“I just kind of felt like it was time to put a face out there and say, ‘Hey, I am a young woman, and I am a conservative and this is what I believe in. And you’re not alone,’” said Cericola, an auditor who is campaigning for Waldwick Borough Council.

Alyssa Dawson, a gay political operative, with 19 tattoos and a metallic nose ring is the antithesis of what a conservative women should be. She would often get judged by the public for her looks but make no mistake about it, Dawson is the chief of staff for state Sen. Holly Schepisi and that’s saying something about her abilities to serve the American public.

“Every day I identify as a Republican, I have people look at me sideways. I have a lot of friends who are very, very liberal who say to me all the time, ‘I can’t believe you deal with this stuff,’” said Dawson.
