Political Parity and Marianne Schnall Launch "She's More Than a Symbol" Series

August 4, 2015
Last week Political Parity teamed up with GUILD speaker and women's rights activist Marianne Schnall to launch the "She's More Than a Symbol Series." 

Nearly 1 in 3 countries around the world has elected a female president; the United States is not one of them. There is great potential for this statistic to transform in 2016. For the first time in history, we have 3 female candidates in the race: Hillary Clinton, Carly Fiorina, and Jill Stein. 

"She's More Than a Symbol" aims for thought leaders and past presidential candidates from across the political spectrum to discuss what it would mean to finally have a woman president. As Marianne states, "Having a woman break the presidential barrier would have an undeniable positive impact on women and girls in this country. The symbolism alone would be incredibly powerful, especially for young women and girls who would see first-hand that it is possible for women to be successful, respected leaders — especially the highest leadership position of them all."
