Says a man ran his hand up her leg on a plane last week
By Katie Campbell | Arizona Capitol Times
In more than 100 years of statehood, Arizonans have elected four women to the governor’s office.
They’ve been more generous with the Legislature. Just this year, the state celebrated the highest percentage of female legislators in the nation – 40 percent.
And another four women have served on the Arizona Supreme Court.
But Justice Ann Scott Timmer found the one silver lining to the state’s gross underrepresentation at its highest court: “The good news is I’m in the top five of all time.”
Timmer is a mother to three daughters. Her eldest an artist, the youngest a recent film school grad and her middle daughter transitioning to a life away from her parents in a group home – she is deaf and mentally impaired.
She raised each to follow her own path, not to simply take the safe route.
And if women are going to beat the odds, she hopes others will heed that advice.
