Women leaders are rising. But it’s not really the ‘Year of the Woman,’ but the Era of Everyone.

Women leaders are rising. But it’s not really the ‘Year of the Woman,’ but the Era of Everyone.

The rise of a new generation of women running for office this year is sometimes likened to a wave, an abrupt reaction to the cultural moment in which we find ourselves. I prefer to see it as a larger shift in the seas.

Waves come and go, but I am hoping for something more permanent, a rising tide finally sweeping away ancient fears of powerful women and tired beliefs that female leaders subtract from men’s opportunities rather than add to the broader good.

As a woman who grew up in India’s strict patriarchy, and who despite that has often found herself frustrated by the gender bias that still exists in a supposedly more liberated America, I am deeply heartened by the current crop of women mobilizing for political action.

But there is a danger in viewing 2018 as yet another “year of the woman,” which seems to suggest a single moment of hopeful triumph in what really needs to be understood as a much longer struggle toward a healthier and better society for us all, regardless of our gender.
