What the 2016 Presidency Represents for WomenSabrina Chwalek

Before we read from Sabrina…let’s here about her! 

“I love doing spending time in nature and doing any outdoor activity- such as hiking, skiing, camping, kayaking and running. I’m also a huge animal lover which is the reason for my interest in animal rights and cruelty. ”

IfHillary Clinton was a man, fewer Americans would describe her as calculating and cold. She wouldn’t have the expectation of maintaining femininity while presenting herself as strong and powerful. Women across the world must work harder than their male counterparts to prove themselves as worthy in the workplace. Now is the time for America to stop perpetuating gender based expectations. Just as women can be brilliant leaders, men can show emotion and compassion. 

 I’m ineligible to vote in the 2016 election, but I support Hillary Clinton not because she is a women, but because she is capable, competent, and my political beliefs strongly align with hers. The possibility of a female POTUS thrills me and Clinton is the first women to hold many titles only men previously held. She represents the hopeful future where Congress is no longer 80% male and 20% female, but nearly half and half. We need a strong voice like hers to carry the heart of feminism- equality between men and women. It’s time that males stop being the major decision makers when it comes to acts involving planned parenthood and abortion — these are women’s decisions. 

 I’m terrified of Donald Trump becoming president. He is racist, a bigot, egotistic, chauvinistic, and sexist. I fear for the culture of acceptance in the US towards women, minorities, and people of different ethnicities, races and cultures. The past 100 years held many watershed moments for equality, and Trump wants to pull a single thread to unravel them all. I’m continuously appalled at his comments and objectification of women, and his choice in a running mate. How would other countries view us with Donald Trump as president?

 We have the choice between two very different presidential candidates. Hillary Clinton is taking a giant step forward for many minorities, while Donald Trump focuses on pulling us back into a time where we only valued the white man’s word. 
Notable Quotes:

 “You know, it doesn’t really matter what [the media] write as long as you’ve got a young and beautiful piece of ass.” 

 “If Hillary Clinton can’t satisfy her husband what makes her think she can satisfy America?”

 “I think the only difference between me and the other candidates is that I’m more honest and my women are more beautiful.”
