Want to hear the satisfying crunch of broken glass? Vote on November 8.

Growing up, my Grandma Minnie would tell me about the day in 1915 when she watched the tens of thousands of women who marched on Fifth Avenue in New York City demanding the right to vote. At the time, women in this country didn’t have the power to make their own choices about their lives and bodies, let alone the power to elect their representatives.

My button collection full of amazing woman candidates!

Today, women vote in higher numbers than men, but democracy is also about who we’re able to cast our votes for. It is my firm belief that women’s voices will truly be represented when women cast ballots and when they are on ballots in numbers equal to men. Only then we will be closer to the ideal of a government that reflects the diversity of all of our citizens.

For too many years (227, to be exact), there wasn’t much choice in the matter of diversity in presidential candidates because every major party nominee was a man. When Hillary Clinton secured the Democratic Party’s nomination this summer, that all changed.

Tuesday is our chance to show that America is ready- more than ready, we’re eager — to help break that highest and hardest glass ceiling once and for all.

I’ve been working for 20 years to elect women to public office and I’ve been told time and time again: “I would vote for a woman, but just not that woman.” During this presidential election, we have the chance to vote for that woman who has dedicated her life to working for women and children. That woman who has shown grace and grit, and who always gets up after being knocked down. That woman who is one of the most qualified candidates to ever run for the presidency. We have the chance to vote for Hillary Clinton.

Tuesday is our chance to show that America is ready- more than ready, we’re eager — to help break that highest and hardest glass ceiling once and for all.

But we can’t hear the satisfying crunch of broken glass under our shoes on November 9 without showing up to vote on November 8. Make a plan now to vote on Election Day. Volunteer to help get your neighbors to the polls. Remind people that Tuesday is their chance to make their voices heard.

A woman’s place is in the Oval Office. #I’mWithHer

The first woman’s rights conference in Seneca Falls was held 70 years before my Grandma Minnie was finally able to cast her ballot. Let’s keep up the march on progress this Tuesday. Your vote can ensure: A woman’s place is in the Oval Office. #I’mWithHer

PS- This Tuesday, voters across the country also have the chance to help ensure a record number of women serve in the U.S. Senate next term, and more women are elected to Governors’ offices around the country. For more information about the Democratic women running, click here.
