Woman Crush Wednesday : Hillary Clinton

I realize today's Woman Crush Wednesday choice is controversial, but hear me out before you go rushing to make a judgement. Regardless of your political ideology you have to admit that Hillary Clinton has helped to advance the role of women in politics. And as someone who has always been interested in how the government works I love that. I would love to meet her one day and say thank you for helping to make political office more realistic for women. I realize Hillary isn't the only woman to hold a high government position, but she's the first woman to seriously run for the top spot of one of the two major parties.

I'm not saying you need to vote for her, I was historian of my teenage republicans club in high school so you can guess how likely she is to have my vote, but you should respect her. No matter how her campaign turns out I hope that it inspires more females to become interested in politics. I hope she inspires more little girls to dream of becoming president without fear of being ridiculed for their dream




And just because I'm sure you're curious, because everyone always asks, no I am not named for her. I'm actually named for Sir. Edmund Hillary, the first to climb Mt. Everest.

  1. I completely agree with you! She's not my favorite person, but I'm excited she's running anyway.
