Female Senators Hope to Fill the Gap in the Next Presidential Election


In the midst of a heated political climate, three female Democrats have stepped forward with the intention of running for president, and they come with high hopes and a fierce confidence. Senator Kamala Harris of California, Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts have all expressed their understanding for a need for women in politics, and have thus shown interest in filling those gaps. These women are looking to takeover the presidential role, while hundreds of other hope to fill a seat in Congress. A majority of the polls look favorably among women leading the vote. Having multiple women could have a strong impact in the political dynamic of election season, and offer a reflective voice in how we view women in politics.
