RE MEGHAN E. Irons’ article about Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Boston (“Getting on equal footing,” Metro, June 3):

After reading the article I was left very disappointed by the fact that Marisa DeFranco, the Democratic congressional candidate for Massachusetts’ Sixth District, was not mentioned in the article. It was particularly disappointing to me that the article only mentioned the male Democratic candidates because the topic that the article covered was women’s economic and political progress.

I find it unsettling that an article about an event promoting women’s success has neglected to mention a woman candidate who has the support of many voters in the Sixth District. DeFranco is a strong candidate and deserves the same recognition as her male opponents.
