Open Forum: Barack Obama a transformational, progressive figure

For me, and for many of the women at Mills, our choice in the upcoming Democratic primary election seems deceptively simple. How can any committed, lifelong feminist not support our country's first serious female presidential contender? Isn't it our duty?

Certainly, this is a historic moment in our country's history, a moment when progressive ideas are finding new support all across the country, a moment when we can put a firm end to the disastrous policies of the past eight years, and a moment when millions of Americans can, for the first time, look at the top competitors for the presidency and see a group of people who better reflect and represent the country we live in than any before.
