While I am ecstatic at the prospect of electing a Democratic president and hopefully retaking the Senate, I know that isn't enough. It won't stop the terrible conservative laws being passed virtually every day in our states that end up trickling up to the Supreme Court and becoming the law of the land.
For those who care about women's representation in elected office, Hillary Clinton's candidacy is a big deal. Our country has never been this close to...
Many people are dismissive of the idea that gender has played an important role in creating and maintaining Clinton's reputation as a liar. But the rhetoric surrounding her candidacy is much like that of Julia Gillard's, the first female prime minister of Australia.
The fight to increase gender representation in politics has reached an uncomfortable crossroads for many in politics, because to increase gender representation in politics, sometimes the nice qualified male candidate will have to lose.
I seek to redefine civic engagement, reinvigorate a culture of public service, expand the definition of who can be a politician, and infuse meaning into the very act of running.

Should Hillary Clinton become the next president of the United States, her victory would historic. However, we don't need a female president to prove ...
"I hope that no one will ever tell a girl that there is something she can't do because she is a girl."
International Women's Day is a time when we celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women around the world. It's also a time when organisations, including Womankind Worldwide, make a rallying cry to ensure that the momentum for change in women's rights and gender equality continues.
