“More Women Leaders Needed Everywhere” is a call for and celebration of women’s leadership. It’s been almost 100 years since women got the right to vote – but this right wasn’t granted to all women (initially only to white women). It took an additional four decades for this right to include women of color. Furthermore, the right to vote didn’t grant women a place at the table or as decision makers. As we enter a new wave of the women’s movement, we have the opportunity to transform and heal our racist and sexist roots and look deeper than simply replacing men leaders with women. “More Women Leaders Needed Everywhere” shines a spotlight on women from diverse backgrounds and experiences to explore women’s rights and leadership from intersectional, multi-generational and multi-racial perspectives. We went into the field and asked women at the Oakland Women’s march – what kind of women do you want to see in leadership? What are the values you want to see reflected? How can we be the ones we have been waiting for?
