Why shouldn’t there be a female president? I didn’t personally understand the controversy. After all, my generation of women didn’t see artists, authors, or scientists need to sign their work under a male name.

As a society, we have seen a break in the mold of the traditional family. However, mothering isn’t limited to a child’s family dynamic. In fact, often we as adults continue to look for maternal guidance.
