A Woman in Politics

Melissa DeCastro

It is too broad a sweep to discuss all women in politics in short form writing. I am however a woman in politics and it is particularly worth discussing how being a woman in politics affects my life, my choices, my family, and the decisions I ultimately make when I am sitting in board rooms and courthouses discussing decisions that will affect the future. I have always been political.

The suspense is growing in the 2016 presidential election, but while we don't know what will happen, one thing we do know is the date of decision. Elections almost always provide us with a concrete outcome. The milestones of our lives, however, such as our career dreams and aspirations, usually don't come with a prescribed date. For that reason, sometimes we allow career and life goals to remain on the horizon instead of becoming the markers of flow and progress in our lives.

Nancy Cohen-koan

In Ernie's mind, that magic lane, that yellow brick road, that rainbow, leads directly to the voting booth where in this land of Oz, we still have the right to vote for whom we really believe cares for the health of the country and not just for themselves. For Ernie, Hillary is the feisty girl named Dorothy. The rest, including Trump, is all humbug.
