In a climate of political maelstrom, it’s often easy to miss the milestones. This week, as we look ahead to a season of gratitude and reflection, we also look around us at the incredible progress of women in our most public spaces. From the success of women of color in getting people to the polls, to the extraordinary accomplishment of our Vice President-elect—the first woman, the first Black individual, and the first person of Asian descent to hold the office—we deserve to celebrate the wins. Politics aside, our nation has come a long way.
So let’s keep up the progress—and turn on the heat. Now is the time to push even harder for fully inclusive equity in every sector and every space where, to paraphrase the late Ruth Bader Ginsberg, decisions are being made.
