Here's How MAKERS Madeleine Albright, Melinda Gates, and Kirsten Gillibrand Govern Like Feminists

While feminism has been a widespread movement for much of the United States' history, the movement seems (now more than ever) to be growing stronger as an increasing number of men jump on the bandwagon and women take leadership roles.

With each chip at the glass ceiling by ambitious women both in and out of politics, the nation comes that much closer to achieving the inevitable — shattered glass where only the sky is the limit.

For decades, women in politics and in other industries have worked toward breaking the glass by governing like the feminists they have chosen to be. From policy MAKERS like Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Hillary Clinton, to history MAKERS like Mae Jemison and Oprah Winfrey, there is no stopping leaders from showing just how important it is to govern like the feminists they are.
