The Next Madam President

            With the 2020 election cycle coming up, women in politics are making a statement that it doesn’t matter what gender you are, as long as the work is done.

There has never been a female president due to the fact that many individuals believe gender influences whether or not somebody can do certain jobs.

But in the next presidential election, women are looking to change minds. On November 3, 2020, we will be voting for our next president.

Out of the 18 candidates, there are six women including Tulsi Gabbard, Kristin Gillibrand, Kamala Harris, Amy Klobuchar, Elizabeth Warren and Marianne Williamson.

Hawaii congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, is a U.S. Army National Guard veteran. Gabbard’s stamped issue is with the disapproval of American Military intervention overseas, especially in Syria.

New York Senator Kristen Gillibrand is another major candidate. Gillbrand’s mission is about having everybody’s voice heard no matter what the race, ethnicity, gender or poverty level.

Her powerful voice and social media following made her the #MeTooSenator, since she stands for women’s equality – which makes her one of the most liberal voices in the Senate.

 California Senator Kamala Harris, a former attorney general and district attorney, has been involved with different issues. Most recently, she revealed a plan for a middle class tax cut. Harris also has a passionate civil rights agenda in Senate.

Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar entered the race, focusing on the opioid crisis and lowering the cost of prescription drugs.

Furthermore, we have Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, former professor at Harvard, whose main concern is to help middle class families under attack from major corporations and political corruption.

Lastly, author and new age lecturer Marianne Williamson has entered the race. Over the past decade she has drawn in money to help with educational development.

Out of the 52 presidents in American history, we have never had a woman sit behind the desk in the Oval Office. A lot of people will make the statement that gender is what defines a person’s ability to do something, including being president.

This has been instilled in people’s minds for centuries. Being president takes strength, knowledge, ambition and dedication.

All of these women bring these characteristics to the table. They have an understanding of what we need to accomplish as a nation and how to get there.

Some of the issues that affect women include reproductive rights, domestic abuse, unequal pay and stereotyping.

In the past, men who have been in office have always had other intentions instead of trying to focus on everybody as a whole.

Having a woman in office means we have a president who understands the hardships that we all go through on a daily basis. This can be vital to the prosperity of America’s future.
