It seems that girls really do run the world.

The 2020 democratic candidates make no exception to this rule.

 

So far, Senators Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand, , Tulsi Gabbard, Amy Klobuchur, have all announced their running. So far, these are the solidified names.

Now why is this important?

For starters, the is the first year where we’ve broken a record on how many women have starting running for president.

The first female candidate to ever run for president was way back in 1872, and her name was Victoria Woodhull. To put it in perspective, we’ve had presidents since 1789. The first time a woman ran was nearly a decade later.

We need women to be the voice on women’s issues, like abortion. As a country, we have many different voices itching to be heard. If all we ever hear are the opinions of old, white, republicans, then many people aren’t going to be satisfied with the decisions being made in this country.

This is, to put it plainly, simply inspiring for women of the future.

This potentially could be the movement that motivates more girls around the world to go into more men-dominated areas, like software engineering, or working with more tech. This could finally be the time in history that we could actually get a woman for president, something that WILL go down in history. With movements like the #metoo act taking it’s course, women are learning to have a voice.

And no, we won’t quiet down.
