The Impact of Women in Public Leadership

Women have a different understanding on needs in policy areas such as healthcare, education, jobs and transportation. Women in elected office bring new perspectives to issues, which increases the likelihood of conceiving and implementing effective and just solutions to social, economic, and environmental problems. After all, women represent over half of the world’s skills, knowledge, and talents. Women are more than half of the country’s population and more than half of the voters – we need more than token representation in public leadership.

We cannot afford to draw our leadership from only one tiny segment of the American people. Women’s talents and ideas must be tapped if we are to have the best possible government.

Let’s make real change on August 4, 2015, by considering women with proven leadership, an understanding of the issues and the knowledge and experience to be catalyst for change.

Congratulations to all the members of Women for Progress who have committed to serve. We appreciate and applaud your skills, knowledge and talents!
