Overall the U.S. is behind

increase women's political representation, reported that women
make up only 19 percent of Congress and hold six Governorships,
and overall the U.S. is behind Afghanistan, Ethiopia and Nepal in
women in government positions. The form of government may play
a role as it relates to women's representation, however, we have a
lot of work to do! I would encourage you to look at their website,
as there are many reasons why we should be taking a seat at the
political table... we need 100 percent of America's talent, ladies,
and it can start with you.
It's striking to me that women have made strides professionally.
In 2017, more females entered medical schools than males, there is
an increasing global discussion of women on boards, and there is
good news for women in the C-Suite, primarily due in part to the
gain in the tech industry. Don't misunderstand - the bias, backed
by data, still reports that men are promoted for potential and women
So, while we women spend a lot of our energy striving to grow
professionally, obtain more degrees, and demand equal pay for equal
work, we still don't understand the power we have collaboratively to
effect change in the public square, which is where real change can
happen. Essentially, we need to get in the game. If we commit to
doing something, things will change, and it will be for the good of
all people - men, women and children.
I'll leave you with two quotes from women in history who made
a difference... be the change you want to see.
"If you want something said, ask a man; if you want
something done, ask a woman."
