The first time Madeleine M. Kunin ran for office it was because she thought there ought to be more women in politics. In time she fulfilled that belief by becoming the first woman governor of Vermont. Throughout her career, Kunin found that the rules for women politicians were different: she would not be forgiven (nor would she forgive herself) for neglecting her family; she could not afford to display emotion at the wrong times lest she be thought "weak"; and she would have to learn to play political hardball with the best of them while keeping her integrity.
