WHY WOMEN SHOULD INVOLVE THEMSELVES IN POLITICS
By Elizabeth Shriver Posted
August 30, 2021 – Politics is completely understandable, given the different roles and responsibilities of men and women in our society. Women have a pivotal role in supporting and fueling the engines of societies and economies year-round. However, for doing so, they must bear equal parts responsibility and malevolence—yes, even with fostering change within their spheres of influence. In every country, women make up a meager 12% of parliamentarians or government officials, even though they make up more than half the population. So how should women contribute to this growing political arena?
Women should fully take part in politics because men should. We are social animals, and we need others to share our thoughts and emotions to function well as a group. There are no doubt tensions between the genders in our society, but it would be a tragedy if socially engineered by-projects and ideologies that pervert human nature instead of unifying it suppressed these powerful emotions. There are dire consequences for women without opportunities to participate in politics, especially when they are young, fully. Not only must they fight against stereotypes, but they have no credit with large companies and have little influence on policy.
Women are valuable members of politics, just like how they are in society.
The role of women in public life is necessarily related to the equality of the sexes. This requires the participation of women in activities necessary to be selected as candidates for elected office, whether these be running for teacher or mayor of a city or state. As women continue to pursue leadership roles in both public and private sectors, women are becoming more aware of the importance of fully taking part in politics as the means of pursuing equal opportunities. However, this does not mean women should not be limited. Participation in politics should be made easier for those who pursue it to achieve social change.
With the current political climate in the United States, women must be part of the decision-making process – whether through supporting their male counterparts or holding their own against them. Female politicians have a role to play because they have a voice similar to their male counterparts. Interestingly, few women have followed in their male counterparts’ footsteps and run for office. However, having women in office has its benefits, specifically to bring attention to issues that matter to women and giving voice to those who may not have a seat at the table.
Today, more than ever, women are putting themselves forward for public office, and the political office seems to be more open to them. The message is out there, and we need to take it seriously. Women are needed in politics because they are educated and capable individuals, but because they bring a perspective different from that of their male counterparts. These are the women who can bring about change and revitalize a stagnant system if given a chance.
Women can make a difference in politics just as much as men do
The reason women are underrepresented in politics is that they are afraid of making political decisions or being eccentric, but that they do not know where to turn for support. Women should fully involve themselves in politics and be vocal about their views on issues that matter to them. It is not enough for women to be advocates for themselves and take up space in the public eye — we need to be active participants in the political process. If you want your voice to be heard, make yourself an active participant by contacting your representative in Congress or participating in political events.
By speaking out and participating in political activities and movements, women will empower themselves as individuals and as a collective. It’s about time we stop pretending that women don’t have any role to play in politics or society. Just because we don’t have a seat at the table doesn’t mean we aren’t here making our voices heard. This year, more women than ever before have been entering the political arena. As more women run for office, there will be fewer excuses for us not to get involved.
As a woman, you are excused from sitting on juries and picking the winners and losers. But you are not excused from participating in politics, especially choosing the people who will decide about your healthcare, your student loans, and your retirement. Loading up with small loans from different sources has been difficult for many people because they aren’t aware of the resources and how easy it can be to get them.
Women should not hold back from fully involved themselves in politics.
It is time to stop the excuses and the reflexes. Women, especially women of color, have been systematically shut out of the political process for too long. We need to recognize that this has been happening, and that it is time for us to get engaged. Women should not hold back from fully involved themselves in politics. Instead, we need to hold the doors open for them. We need to show that leadership positions do not intimidate us. Not only that, but we need to push past our fears and educate others on how we can effectively take part in creating change. We need to own this moment and use it to push past our insecurities and teach others how to work together to achieve greater equality.
The last thing the world needs is more barriers between people. The more women involved in the political process, the more effective our international policies will be. This is especially true with addressing global challenges like climate change and poverty. The United States is not the world’s leader in fighting these issues, but we can and should lead by example. We do that by ensuring that women have a seat at the table and are included in discussions about what’s best for our future.
Today, Twitter, Facebook, and other social media are full of powerful tools for women to be fully involved in politics. However, most times, it is simply not possible for women to get involved as full participants. There is still a perception that women aren’t interested in politics and only get involved when marriage or family is on the line. This can damage, as women are the majority and have the money and means to invest in politics. We need to challenge this perception and start showing that it isn’t true that politics scared women off or cannot get involved.
Although women makeup 57% of the active workforce and account for more than half of all savings/investments, they make up only 12% of elected officials. That oppression is a major reason women have no political voice in matters big and small. The Internet is a tool that can be utilized for political purposes, so women must recognize the benefits of online access. Women have a greater need for political information and help than men do. As more and more women gain access to the Internet, they will act more effectively on their own economic justice and equality needs. This change will benefit them physically and inform people around them.
