Director's statement: I believe that women of all political leanings, ethnicities, and backgrounds should have an equal opportunity to lead through elected office. Any democracy will benefit from the varied perspectives and experiences that women bring to leadership. With this movie I wish to give a voice to women and inspire more young women to decide to run for an office in their community and more people to vote for qualified women at elections.
