As we embark on this journey of change and hope in our world, we also embark on the many changes that might take place when it comes to voting season. The time for voting is now and when it comes to who you’re going to choose, you might not know about all of the candidates that are on the list.
There are actually quite a few strong women on the line up, many more than you would see in recent years, making it a year of change in many different ways and more way than one. Meet some of the women that are going to be running for the elections.
According to the New York Times, this is the most diverse the political pool has been ever. There is an increase in women and different minorities, as well as others coming into the mix and putting their names out there. It is sure to be one different type of election, a very interesting one, to say the least.
There are currently 260 women that are listed on the directory for the Center for American Women and Politics. With this number being so high, it is expected that it is going to continue to climb even further. Additionally, 60 of these women are currently running for senate or house during the elections. Some have owned their own businesses, others have backgrounds in political sciences and some are well known top of the line people at big businesses.
These women are all U.S. congressional nominees that are running during the elections, keep an eye out for their names – Chrissy Houlahan, Lena Epstein, Lea Marquez Peterson, Kimberlin Brown Pelzer, Dee Thorton, Elaine G. Luria and Jane Raybould amongst others.
These women get out there and inspire other women to do the same. As the world changes, it is important to note that as women, we can do anything we set our minds too and get to where we want to be.
