For Immediate Release
Statement of EMILY's List Founder & Chair Ellen R. Malcolm on Geraldine Ferraro
"Geraldine Ferraro was a huge part of EMILY's List from the beginning -- from before the beginning, when our founders helped work to secure her nomination. She shared a house with Barbara Mikulski, the first Democratic woman elected to the Senate in her own right, and Barbara Kennelly, the first woman Chief Majority Whip -- what a band of sisters. Geraldine was so tough, and so much fun -- and she fought her disease with the same toughness, charm and positive attitude that she showed as a political leader. We'll miss her, and continue to think about her with every new woman who runs."
