VIDEO: How can we break America’s highest glass ceiling?

By Political Parity on September 12, 2014

Inspired by Founder Marianne Schnall’s book What Will It Take To Make A Woman President?, Political Parity, Running Start and the Women Under Forty PAC convened some of the nation’s leading voices for a conversation on why a woman has yet to break America’s highest glass ceiling.

In the video above:

  • Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton advocates for diverse public leadership.
  • Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen explains the value of electing women on both sides of the aisle.
  • Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz describes the barriers women face in envisioning a pathway to politics.
  • NFL veteran and political activist Don McPherson calls out the lack of men involved in the conversation.
  • The White House Project Founder Marie C. Wilson emphasizes the importance of building a strong bench of female leaders.
  • Janet Foutty, principal at Deloitte (our generous sponsor for this event), encourages us to lift up examples of healthy work-life balance.

Join the conversation for a #WomanPrez on Twitter with @politicalparity, @wufpac, @runningstartDC, @feministdotcom and @womanpresbook. In the words of Marie Wilson, “Let’s surge it all the way up!”
