“Our country has endured high opportunity costs for keeping white men in power for so long while ignoring the political contributions women could make.”

CAWP Scholar Kelly Dittmar and CAWP Director Debbie Walsh publish an op-ed in USA Today that reflects on the attention paid to Biden’s selection of a vice presidential nominee and warns, “We should take this moment to celebrate the woman nominee, not the act of nominating a woman.” The authors add that selecting a woman nominee is neither revolutionary nor an act of sacrifice for Biden’s presidential campaign. Instead, they argue that selecting a woman is overdue.
