Of the 26 people that gave over $100,000 to a political candidate through a PAC, only four of them -- or 15 percent -- were women. Why don't women donate big money to politics?

ABCNEWS.GO.COM reports:
In the elite world of high-dollar Super PAC donors, men reign supreme.

    There was a study claiming "Woman are smarter than Men" maybe they should have included this with their study.

    The men have all the money duh. And frankly if women ran America it'd probably be straightened out! They are the peace keepers the teachers and the ones who choose the to make love not war.

    they spend the bulk of their income on hair product and shoes.

    True, but once you are a millionaire/ billionaire I think the hair and shoes are covered and there is some cash left to spend...why not donate?

    Let's talk about the real numbers and not the dough re mi: 'Those Millionaire men may have bigger pockets than women; however, empty and unregistered sacs don't count' would be more apropos. There are way more women registered to vote than men, and that folks, are where the real numbers count.

    These people probably made a lot of their money or at least started their legacy in a time when men worked and women stayed at home. Thankfully, this has changed and women and men have the same societal roles (excluding that women still have to bear children on top of this!) but it hasn't changed overnight. Eventually this will correct itself as more and more women rise to power and greater wealth. This stuff has to phase in/out and takes time. Like a generation or two...not a presidential term or two.

    A woman rich, poor, or a minority, not wanting to support a Party that routinely talks about taking them back in time and re-addressing issues long thought settled?

    Beats me.

    He has 12,000 plus employee's here in the USA.. Who cares if he does spend a hundred million dollars on this election.. That's more JOBS.. More Money into the economy.. He and his wife spend millions on their Free Drug Clinic's in this and other counties.. How many rich liberal democrats can say the same? Liberals hate him because he pays Union Wages and Benefits, to 7-8 thousand Non-Union employee's in Vegas...

    Potentially having 1 person influencing the U.S. Government, Surely I can't see a threat to democracy in that. But thank you for furthering my point that not one of the Presidents policies has affected Shelly's income one bit.

    I guess you're blind to see the hypocrisy of a Richard Trumka speaking for the entire AFL-CIO and union workers by doing just the same? How about Hoffa, Andy Stern?

    How many trips to the WH have those pigs made over the past 42 months?

    Must be purdy damn important whatever they're influencing.

    Could just be statistical. Are there more male millionaires intersted in politics than females? Now if this stat is pulled from a group 100 male millioaires and 100 female millionaires and the females were still at 15% the answers posted by the asker would be more probable.
