It’s obvious that the voices at the policy table have been mostly men; often *only* men.
And though ‘free labor’ from women enabled this system — our voices, our experiences and knowledge, have been utterly absent from governance and the distribution of resources.
But there’s a way to change this system. A simple strategy to overturn the status quo.
Imagine a woman in your life that you look up to.
The one that organizes holidays and family gatherings.
Empathizes with those who need to be heard the most.
She’s strong, courageous, and fierce.
“SHE represents me”
Imagine her on City Council – how much more organized and family-centered our communities and cities would be…
Imagine having a majority of State Legislatures, City Councils, and School Boards with a majority of women.
We’ve never had that.
We’ve never had the perspectives, experiences, and knowledge of women LEADING our country.
A room of *only* women creating policy, protecting children and communities, and planning for the future.
That hasn’t been done.
We will all be better off for it.
And the research agrees.
When women lead, more people benefit.
When women lead, all of our ships rise.
And if you are a woman who is interested in running for office, do it.
Local positions like School Boards, City Councils, County Commissioners, and State Legislatures need YOU!
Volunteer for female candidates. Donate. Canvass. Donate.
Talk. About. Politics.
Tell your friends to vote. Remind your neighbors to vote.
And then, VOTE FOR EVERY WOMAN ON THE BALLOT.
I’m in, are you?
