The New York Times states that “over 70 nations have been led by women”. Hillary Clinton got the closest that an American women has ever gotten to achieving the most top job in the country. I am just confused as to why our country is so behind with getting women to such a high position. Most of society thinks that women have only become recognized as a political leader because of their husbands or fathers. Now that may be true in some cases, however that should not be what we, as a country, only continue to accept in the future. I think that women should be able to rise to power without the help of a man at their side. We are just as strong as men and we can accomplish anything if we put our mind to it.
