What Women Want

The YWCA recently did a survey on what women are wanting from our next president:

Some very fascinating findings, including that violence against women is one of the top priorities for women of all ages, as well as the economy, and that for women under 30, civil rights – specifically addressing racial and religious injustice – is one of the top issues. I have to admit, I was a little surprised and disappointed to find there weren’t more women interested in support for family – both taking care of children and taking care of elders. These are both issues which I’d like to see our next president address during his term.

Are there any issues that you’d like to see the next presidency address in terms of women?
