New Mexico History 1910 to 2020 & Politics: On the back Soledad C. Chacón climbs the New Mexico Round House and the Congressional Delegation of Rep. Deb Haaland, Yvette Herrell and Teresa Leger Fernandez

Was 2014 the flashpoint for women in executive leadership and politics for the state of New Mexico? A lot of dialog has been created about the number women in politics in New Mexico of recent but not much has been published about the pathway that led to the success of women in power. There are a few key leaders, key organizations and the path fell on the backbone or foundation of some strong and determined women to get New Mexico to where it is now.

Let us look at a little insight into the history of what created the pathway to female equity in New Mexico political leadership.... Are they up to the challenge? Will they put good ole boy politics to rest and step past money and ideology to lead in a bi-partisan New Mexico on the backs of their 1910 progressive predecessors?
