Women are the majority of voters, the majority of volunteers, and the majority of grassroots activists in this country. We deserve a government that reflects that.
As the Democratic presidential primary has progressed, we have seen the most diverse pool of candidates in our history - women, people of color, young candidates, and our first openly gay candidate - narrow to look like what has been the status quo in this country for far too long. But we can still make history this year.
There has never been a woman, not to mention a woman of color, elected as Vice President of the United States or a Cabinet that fully reflects the gender and racial diversity of our country.
We've urged the top two remaining Democratic candidates, Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Bernie Sanders, to affirm their commitment to gender equity by running with a woman Vice President and appointing women to at least 50% of their Cabinet and White House staff hires. On the debate stage in March, Vice President Joe Biden said he would. Senator Bernie Sanders said he "likely" would run with a woman Vice President. Now is the time we have to let both candidates know: women are the majority of voters this primary and we want the ticket to represent us.
Sign on if you believe it's time for our government to represent us.
