EMILY's List introduces "Madam President"
Women have made enormous strides in the past thirty years. We now comprise eighteen percent of Congress. This year, for the first time, we have the chance to elect women mayors of some of America’s largest cities. But we still don’t have enough women leaders pushing for issues that already dominate our national discourse – health care, equal pay – and we have yet to break through the final glass ceiling and put a woman at the top of the Democratic ticket and into the Presidency. This is why today we are launching “Madam President,” our campaign to put a woman in the White House.
