Why do the liberals and Hillary Clinton supporters blame US Women for "not shattering the ultimate of glass ceilings?" I am sorry, I am a white woman, successful, educated and smart, and I voted for Trump. Let me say that again, I voted RED! Why is it that there has to be finger pointing to something all the time? Why are people able to make assumptions that a woman should have voted for a woman?
Yes it is true that in most sectors women make up less than a full 5% on Board of Directors or Corporate Officer Positions. But the new trend in corporate leadership is showing that women are thriving in work team environments because they are team builders and all about consensus. If a woman deserves to lead, she can, and she should. Did the Democratic Party ever think that just maybe it was their candidate who wasn't strong enough?
Lets take a look at something: The 25 Most Powerful Women in the World List; there are 18 of 25 right here in the US (keeping in mind that 3 who sit on our Supreme Court all tie at 23). That says a lot of our Country. Hillary Clinton was # 2- Running for President of the US. But the rest of this list is impressive to say the least:
#3 Janet Yellen, Chair of Federal Reserve, #5 Marry Barra, CEO GE, #7 Sherly Sandburg, COO Facebook, #8 Susan Wojcicki, CEO YouTube, #9 Meg Whitman and the list goes on. I think that women by in large are standing up and being noticed for the skills and leadership that they have to offer. Some of this Country's most dynamic and innovative technology companies are being led by women. # 15 is Angela Ahrents, Senior VP of Apple. #24, Marillyn Hewson, Lockheed Martin. Women are advancing. I wish people would stop using the term Glass Ceiling. By using the "crutch" we are perpetuating the very thing we as women are trying to overcome.
Six very smart and talented women just won in this election. Three of those women were of color. From California, to Illinois, to Florida, to Nevada, to Washington and Minnesota! Thank you for recognizing the strength and leadership that women offer. Now lets also look at Kellyanne Conway, the Campaign Manager for Donald Trump, an awesome woman of strength and power. She has been an American Republican Campaign Manager, strategist and pollster. She has been involved with The Polling Company, in 1995. Conway's company has consulted on consumer trends, often trends regarding women. Conway's clients have included Vaseline, American Express and Hasbro.
I found a Forbes Quote by Ellen Fondiler that reads: "Every Door Can Be Unlocked"
We women need to stop focusing on the ceiling made of glass, and start focusing utilizing our powers and strengths to keep the momentum we have built going forward. We are strong, we are smart, and we need to quit being about excuses, and keep moving forward to enhance and showcase the Woman! We are mighty!
