Sexism in politics is changing, says Sen. Julie Adams

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – A generation ago, the political arena still was largely male dominated.

This has changed, especially in the last 10 years. Where women once were either discounted or sexualized, they are respected and viewed more as equals. There is also an increased awareness of sexism in politics, and expectations for proper behavior are changing.

This will continue as more women get involved and enter the political arena, according to Kentucky State Senator Julie Raque Adams.

“I’ve been in the general assembly since 2011, and I have seen a real shift in how I was perceived as a freshman coming in in 2011, to how I am perceived as a member of Senate leadership in 2021,” said Sen. Adams.

Adams was among the speakers at today’s Kentucky Chamber of Commerce Women’s Summit in Lexington.
