Raising Ms. President” is a powerful new documentary by Kiley Lane Parker about “the next generation of female political leaders and how we, as a nation, must encourage our young women to strive to be our country’s legislators, governors and yes, even president”.

For too long women have stood by as men make all of the political decisions. Education, health care, the environment and national security are all issues that need more women at the decision making table. After all, women make up over 50 percent of the population and workforce, over 50 percent of college graduates and have higher earning power before they reach their 30th birthday. Yet most women do not want to run for office and often say they are under-qualified to run and serve. “Raising Ms. President” looks at where political ambition starts and how we might get more women to run in order to create a stronger country and world.

About sheswithmeseattle

She's With Me is the brain child of three feminists who got tired of emailing each other every time they caught wind of a womanist event, so they created a separate space to house their feminist calendar. The benefits would be twofold: fewer emails cluttering up their inboxes, and more people learning about Seattle's growing feminist community. She's With Me aims to be a feminist hub, where all the goings on of different organizations are collected in one place. Our plans for the site include reviews/write-ups of events, interviews with local feminist activists, news updates, and essays, poetry, and art by feminists. The Fourth Wave of Feminism is here, and She's With Me will be the feminist scrap book documenting our herstory as it unfolds.
