Women in Gov are Awesome because…

We have Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day. But here at GovLoop, we like to celebrate women everyday. So, I asked my fellow GovLoopers why they think women in government are particularly awesome. They had some pretty great answers, as you can see below!

We hope you enjoy our photos and shout outs. We know being a woman in government is not always easy, but you inspire us with your service every day!

Great tribute to women for Women’s History Month! I’m a big fan of women. My mother, wife, daughter, and grand-daughter are all members of the club.

I wanted to like this but many of these are just so horribly misguided. Reinforcing stereotypical expectations that women must be graceful, wear heels, and look good in their work attire (justice robes.) It also seems to be making the argument for women in government towards men. Telling them they should want to “hang out” with more than just dudes. You could have easily made the argument without using gender role expectations and common gender tropes.
