The easier way was when the election results would just get leaked to the Voice ahead of time…

In the postscript, I do promise to look at the elected body of the Senate, and I can’t wait to crunch those numbers. However, I don’t know if I’ll be able to look at the rest of the appointed GUSA execs. I wish I could, but like I said, GUSA doesn’t keep those rosters, nor do the Election Commissioners hand down information.

But I think these numbers are interesting by themselves because unless I’m mistaken, I’m examining the only elected roles the GUSA executive branch has.

The Senate has always had a diverse range of both female candidates and females. There have also been a significant number of chairmanships by women in the Senate – Lin Yang and Alexandra DiModica, just to name a few from last year. And Christina Goodlander was not only the head of the last Assembly but also the Speaker of the inaugural Senate.

Finally, you have to look at positions of power within the Executive itself. Women have held a lot of important executive roles under every administration – this one included.
