Are We Saying Goodbye To The Glass Ceiling?

Last week, Hillary Clinton unveiled a new initiative designed to accelerate the participation of women and girls around the world in economic, cultural, political, and social aspects of life. Hillary’s, “No Ceilings: The Full Participation Project” was introduced at the Pennsylvania Conference for Women. 
At the conference Hillary stated, “[I] believe that women everywhere can be and are agents of change, drivers of progress, makers of peace – all we need is a fighting chance to show what we can do in every part of life.” (Clinton Foundation, 2013).  Hillary is pushing to give so many women and girls the chance they have been dreaming of, the chance of a lifetime to fully participate in all aspects of society. If the initiative were to catch on, we could expect to see full and equal participation of women in political, civil, and economic life.  This is the kind of movement that we at MWPC have been working so hard for.  We look forward to seeing some change!

So many women have felt the pressures of the glass ceiling pushing them down.  This idea of the glass ceiling keeps women from climbing the corporate ladder regardless of their qualifications.  This initiative can start to change that. Women will be able to take their rightful seat in the Senate, in the House, and even in the Oval Office.

Thank you Hillary for continuing the fight for women around the world.
