Molly Mayfield Barbee
Molly Mayfield Barbee marks the 88th anniversary of the nineteenth amendment to the US constitution with an appreciation of the central role that women are playing in this year's presidential race in the US (Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton, and now Sarah Palin), as well as the much longer list of women whose unconventional demand for greater political participation brought us to where we are today.
Some recent and positive developments for women's representation in Europe and Africa are also discussed, and women everywhere are encouraged to build on these successes, continue to collaborate, and practice their political rights.
Molly Mayfield Barbee is a driving force behind Peace X Peace, a global network of women working to support women's rights and achieve greater gender equality in our time. Much more information about Peace X Peace, and more of Ms Mayfield Barbee's writings can be found at www.peacexpeace.org
