For every woman who has been sexually harassed, received lower pay for the same job, and worked harder for less recognition, this tidal wave of rebellion, and the record number of women signing up to run for office, gives me hope for the future.

“I first came to Chicago when I was in my early twenties, still trying to figure out who I was; still searching for a purpose to my life. It was in neighborhoods not far from here where I began working with church groups in the shadows of closed steel mills. It was on these streets where I witnessed the power of faith, and the quiet dignity of working people in the face of struggle and loss. This is where I learned that change only happens when ordinary people get involved, get engaged, and come together to demand it.”—President  Barack Obama
