“One?  I have to pick just one?” she laughed. 

I was chatting with Catherine Weatbrook, who’s running for Seattle City Council district 6 (Ballard/Fremont/Greenlake), and had just asked her to tell me about one gender equality issue she would work on if she were elected.

It’s hard to choose just one issue, because when it comes to Seattle, Weatbrook argues, “We are so not progressive enough.  We talk a big game, but we don’t deliver.”
