I recently read an interesting piece written by Malini Saba on the many things that a woman president would bring to the White House as compared to another male president. The article was published earlier this month on The Huffington Post. It started by explaining how women lost all their legal standing as soon as the revolutionary war was over, despite providing critical assistance during the war.
The fight by women for rights and freedoms did not take long after the war to start. In the 1800s, numerous campaigns saw women gain some freedom. Although these freedoms and rights are insignificant compared to the ones enjoyed by women in the modern U.S., they were key to making women believe that they could get more by fighting consistently for such rights.
In 1920, women received the greatest boost towards participation in the U.S. elections. Over 17 million American women earned the right to vote. Although it is almost a century since women gained this right, the U.S. is yet to have its first female president.
I believe that the current presidential race provides the United States with the best opportunity to have a female president. Saba believes that if elected, Hillary Clinton can hold the respect and integrity of the Oval Office. Additional, having a woman as the president of the most powerful country in the world will significantly influence women’s role in the society and motivate women across the globe to pursue their political dreams. This information was originally mentioned on The Huffington Post.
It is also evident that Hillary has the best resume for the presidential position. Her previous responsibilities have provided her with advanced knowledge on foreign and domestic policies. Just like in the management world where someone’s experiences are used to project their potentials as CEOs, I believe Hillary’s experiences make her the best person to be elected as the next president of the U.S. Moreover, she is a calm person who never participates in verbal attacks.
