A Woman President

Nearly 1 in 3 countries globally has elected a female head of state or government; the United States is not one of them. There is great potential for this statistic to transform in 2016. For the first time in history, we have 3 female candidates in the race: Hillary Clinton, Carly Fiorina, and Jill Stein.  To mark this significant event and in anticipation of the election to come, we have partnered with Marianne Schnall to release an original series, She’s More Than a Symbol. Thought leaders and past presidential candidates from across the political spectrum discuss what it would mean to finally have a woman in the highest office.

Check back often for upcoming pieces in our partnership series, She’s More Than a Symbol with Marianne Schnall:

She’s More Than a Symbol  features a compilation of interviews to answer the questions, what would having a woman president mean for our country, culture, and collective women’s leadership? Why is it so important?

She Talks Dirty: Money in Politics reflects on the all-encompassing impact of money on the political system in America.

She’s Young and Restless focuses on young women and the change they can bring to electoral politics.

She Looks to the Future casts a hopeful eye to 2016 and asks what it will take to ensure more women candidates run beyond the next election cycle.

Stay tuned for an insightful audio series with three past presidential candidates.
