Despite making significant strides in achieving gender equality in this country, women still hold less than 20 percent of Congressional seats. Compared to other nations, the United States is both low and losing ground in women’s political representation. Raising Ms. President encourages girls to consider a career in public service, as having more women at the decision making table means better decisions will be made for us all.
