The first woman elected to the White House will answer to many names — Madam President, ma’am, and, most likely, Mom. That’s something I like to think about on Mother’s Day.
Given the demographics and family status of many of the women in politics today, there’s a pretty good chance that the first female who gets to sit behind the historic Resolute Desk in the Oval Office will be a mother of young children.
Think that’s crazy? Read the rest of my most recent op-ed piece at CNN entitled, “Coming soon: A young mother in the Oval Office?”
And if you want to read more about moms getting into the political arena, I’ll contribute a portion of the sales of my book Mothers of Intention: How Women and Social Media are Revolutionizing Politics in America (Bright Sky Press), if you purchase before midnight on Mother’s Day!
