October 16, 2020 — A new video released today by the Lincoln Project, “Girl in the Mirror,” asks Americans to imagine the upcoming election through the lens of our nation’s young women.
Constantly bombarded by Donald Trump’s demeaning, misogynistic rhetoric, young girls have spent the last four years witnessing the leader of the free world suffer no consequences for his mistreatment of strong women. It’s time to put an end to this behavior.
“Being an intelligent, strong woman is not a partisan endeavor,” said Sarah Lenti, Executive Director of the Lincoln Project. “As a nation, we’ve been blessed to have amazing women as role models in both parties, but only ever one President who treats our gender writ large with such disdain. It’s time for a President who celebrates the perspective women have to offer, and who acknowledges their inherent worth, skill, and place in our government.”
As the election nears, so does the possibility of the United States having its first woman Vice President. This will be a momentous occasion for girls and women across the nation, and one that we continue to work fervently towards achieving.
