Women will no longer be underestimated |


There’s an unprecedented number of female candidates running for public office this year. It’s a fact that’s elegantly detailed in Charlotte Alter's cover story for TIME this week titled, “The Avengers. First They Marched. Now They’re Running.”

You can call it revenge or payback for the 2016 presidential election results. No matter what you call it, you can’t deny that it’s inspiring and overdue. This wave of women is a group of determined individuals who are dedicated to enacting laws and rules that promote equality for all. From the Women’s March around the world to the #MeToo movement, women are declaring that their parity and rights will no longer be ignored — and you better get onboard.
