In the News:
November 2018’s mid-term elections showed in incredible increase in female politicians running for and in office. Many of those elected are women of interesting backgrounds, religions and ethnicities.
In My Opinion,
I’ve never been prouder to be a woman than seeing women run for office. It’s one thing to be able to vote. It’s another thing to be be able to make decisions and have your voice heard. I think this shift in voices of our government is what will help shift the world. One of the most important things to me is to seek out, support and promote faces that look like mine. When I was growing up, faces in politics were still very much old, male and white. It’s refreshing, encouraging and inspiring to see women from all walks of life taking control of this world. We’ve heard countless clichés about the strength, importance and power of women — it’s about time we see these women and the things they can do.
I’m proud to be a women with freedoms during this time. It’s really a time when people are looking to women for answers in the future. Girls growing up in this time will truly feel like they can do whatever they want to do. If and when I have a daughter, I’ll be able to encourage her without disclaimers. I won’t have to worry about how she got where she got. She’s know that her mind is just as important as her body, if not more.
Looking forward to hearing more from these women. I’m inspired, to say the least
