Allie Latimer is a woman to be celebrated. According to www.thehistorymakers.org, www.thewomenshalloffame, and www.theamericanbar.org, She accomplished many things in her lifetime and is still doing so. She contributed to civil rights, working conditions, and many other things that changed society. She was put into the Women’s Hall of Fame in 2009, and is currently 89 years old. With three resources I used, I was able to write many of the accomplishments she has done in her lifetime.
Similar to how Queen Emma was portrayed, current female politicians are often also portrayed as cold, indifferent women unsuited for office. During the 2016 US Presidential Elections, candidate Hillary Clinton faced immense, sexist criticism from media, society, and President Trump himself. Clinton had been labeled a “nasty woman”, “untrustworthy”, and a “criminal” throughout her campaign. Many female politicians face similar sentiments and remarks. In fact, according to Terri Vescio, a psychology professor at Penn State University, “The more female politicians are seen as striving for power, the less
She got her start with her first internship at ABC Eyewitness News. She, along with 300 other prospective interns, stood in the pouring rain for hours waiting for somebody to take a chance on them. Her dedication and drive was eminent at this point. Surely

Politics and the word “exciting” being used in the same sentence is an oxymoron for most. But the CBS show Madam Secretary, shatters that assumption. The show is based on the life of a “rogue” Secretary of State, Elizabeth (Bes) McCord which is played by Tia Leoni. She has been appointed to the Secretary of State position just after the previous Secretary of State dies in a mysterious plane crash. The pilot episode begins with President Conrad Dalton pulls up to her private ranch house asking his former colleague from the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) to work with him again, but this time in his cabinet. She is reluctant at first for a few reasons, she is married and has three children, she has not previously held any political office, and she does not have any interest to advance herself in politics. The President does not take no as offer, gives her some time to think about it and later on McCord agrees to take the job. The show embracing a strong female leading character handing commonplace issues all the while not mentioning a political party propels a compelling message that resonates with its viewers and forces the viewers to request that our political system in reality was analogous to the show.

Former Ambassador Samantha Power is an incredible example of a woman who has climbed the ladder to the top, immigrating to America at age 9 and eventually becoming the United States Ambassador to the UN. Samantha Power began her career as a war correspondent, a stepping stone that would give her an insight into the conditions people face in times of war and turmoil, conditions that mirror conditions of war today. Initially, Power tried to shed light on the casualties of war by writing articles and eventually books. However, Power soon realized that writing would not be enough to effect the change she wanted to see. In 2005, she joined then-Senator Barack Obama’s office as a foreign policy fellow and later joined his presidential campaign. As she entered politics, she continued to advocate for the issues she had made her name on. Power continued to ascend after President Obama took office, taking positions at the National Security Council and United Nations. However, she never became a
For my political campaign project, I partnered up with Christina in my class to phone bank with Jane Kim’s campaign for California State Senate. Jane Kim is San Francisco’s Supervisor of District 11. She is a more than a capable and qualified candidate for the spot as a senator with her alma mater being Stanford University and UC Berkeley School of Law. In 2010, she was elected onto the District 6 Board of Supervisors and became the first Asian-American candidate to win an Asian district in the city. She was also the first Korean-American elected official in the city. She has been a part of the Board of Education and is a part of the Transbay Joint Powers Authority and many of her policies, when she was running for State Senate, were closely
From former First Lady, to New York Senator, to Secretary of State, and now Presidential candidate, Hillary Rodham Clinton has undeniably proven that she possesses what it takes to lead the country (“Hillary’s Story”). As a champion for women’s equality in the workplace, pursuer of health care reform, and a tireless advocate for children’s welfare (Zeleny), she knows how to tackle tough issues and get results.
Ever since Madeleine Albright was a young girl, she has been exposed to politics. Madeleine Korbel was born in Prague, Czechoslovakia, on May 15, 1937. Her father was Josef Korbel, who was a member of the Czech diplomatic corps. Due to World War II, “When German agents took power in Czechoslovakia in 1938, her father, an outspoken opponent of the Nazis, was targeted for execution” (Salem Press 16). To avoid death they moved to England, where she learned fluent English. After the war they returned to Prague, but then moved to New York, where Josef was in the United Nations. They moved to Colorado due to her father being targeted again. Madeleine began to take after her father in politics, “She won a scholarship to Wellesley College in Massachusetts,
3. She wasn't sitting idle when Bernie Sanders met her. She was working for Ralph Nader's Public Citizen as a communications officer. Her job was to ensure American citizens – all American citizens – are represented by the government. Through this position, she likely has contacts and ties that will make a huge difference in Sanders' campaign.

These flaws, however, only convey that she is human, just like all of us, with a complex character. For example, she can sometimes be brutally honest, telling things precisely how she sees them. But her honesty only builds on her trustworthiness as she fulfills what she says she will do and keeps all of her promises. When she promises to stand up for human rights, she does so in a multitude of ways, such as representing minorities on the school white board and organizing a walkout against gun violence. With so much care for others’ wellbeing, she is the perfect leader and candidate for office. (Appeal to self interest). Her friend, Gregory Perryman, notes that she is the “kind of person who not only will be grounded in her principles of acceptance and tolerance of others but a strong advocate for people. Someone who is not afraid to show care for others no matter who they are or what they have been through.” Her immense care is what truly distinguishes Elizabeth from the rest of the candidates, and as an activist who honestly cares, she keeps her promises of helping people, being able to entirely match her actions to her
