Will Donald Trump's Cabinet Represent Men and Women Equally?

Will Donald Trump's Cabinet Represent Men and Women Equally?

Since the day after the election, President-elect Donald Trump has been working to decide who will make up the Trump administration.

Before his decision to appoint Reince Priebus as White House Chief of Staff, Trump and his transition team have been working to create a list of potential members to make up the administration.

Among the 47 members listed are eight women — Pam Bondi, Sarah Palin, Victoria Lipnic, Jan Brewer, Mary Fallin, Cynthia Lummis, Carol Comer, and Leslie Rutledge — and two men of color — David Clarke and Ben Carson.

Despite there being such a small percentage of individuals who are not White males being considered for the Trump Cabinet, the only thing left to do is wait and see.
