Excellent, I’m glad you have some women in such high roles in advertising. Seeing as only about 4% of Fortune 500 companies have women as CEOs, and those leading non Fortune 500 companies isn’t that much higher either, it’s good to hear that women have been taking a more predominant role in some industries.

Additionally, take a look at other industries. Advertising may have a larger portion of women, but my own industry? Tech? It’s gone DOWN over the past 30 years and now is at about 25% overall with tiny statistics for women of color.

Take a look at politics. Women account for roughly 20% of Congress, predominantly being Democrats by a wide margin. This extends to other roles in State government and City governments as well with between 18.8% to 25.3%. The US population is pretty close to 50/50 men and women, so yes, we live in a world still dominated by men.

Side note, I don’t see the President as a father or mother figure. They are there to do a job — serve the country. Clinton doesn’t need to mother us, and I sure as hell don’t want Trump within a five mile radius of me, let alone be a father to the U.S. They need to have the background and experience to make the right decisions for this country. Clinton has that. Trump doesn’t.
