For most of US history, women have been forced into the periphery of politics. However, that does not mean women have been completely absent from participating in the political system. In the mid to late 19th century, women were one of the driving forces behind the Temperance Movement; one of the more famous slogans from that time was “Lips that touch alcohol shall not touch ours.”

In 1916 Jeannette Rankin became the first women elected to Congress, despite the fact that women still did not have the right to vote. When women did win the right to vote, they flexed their political muscles to help propel Calvin Coolidge into the White House in the election of 1924.

Although Hillary Clinton has been seen as one of the first female candidates with a legitimate chance of becoming president, she is by no means the first woman to run for president. That wonderful honor goes to Victoria Woodhull in 1872; who ran with civil rights legend Frederick Douglas under the banner of the Equal Rights Party. Unfortunately, Woodhull faced heavy resistance and was denied ballot access in every state. Thankfully, that is not the political climate female politicians find themselves in today.

There are currently 104 women serving in Congress, or approximately 19 percent. While this is by no means an ideal number, equal representation is finally starting to happen; albeit slower than we like. Women still face monumental challenges in being elected on the national election, but that does not mean they cannot find victory and fame on the national stage.

In recent years, women like Michelle Bachmann and Carol Moseley Braun have proven that women can run for president and be considered serious candidates; and vice presidential candidates like Sarah Palin have shown that women can easily outshine their male political counterparts.

The upcoming 2016 election is also shaping up to be a big year for women. Hillary Clinton is currently dominating the Democratic field of candidates, and former HP exec Carly Fiorina has been able to claw her way to the top tier of the crowded Republican field of candidates. In a world where having a woman president once seemed like a far away idea, the dream of a more equal future is starting to become a reality.

Republican Presidential Candidate Valma Kittington
 
Valma Kittington is a veteran of the US Navy and a “born again” Christian. With conservative leanings on abortion, gun control, and drug laws, as well as a strong stance against illegal immigration, she is a good fit for many religious Republicans.

Presidential Candidates 2016
Pawel Kuczynski
 
To preserve freedom of political expression, the electorate must be both free to choose and adequately informed. There are over 1000 presidential candidates registered with the FEC for the 2016 election. Most of these officially declared candidates are marginalized or completely ignored by mainstream media and lack the benefit of unlimited spending by Super PAC’s.

We profile all official candidates, from all political parties, on a level platform. Some may be nutcases, but most are respectable individuals with legitimate positions on the issues. Any officially registered candidates not included may be fictitious, or have insufficient available information from which to build a profile.

We don’t know if any of these candidates would make a better president than a career politician, just as there's no guarantee that any of the 2016 campaign promises will actually be kept.

Word of mouth and today's web of social networks empower 'We the People' to promote a candidate more effectively than any media conglomerate, and subsequently scrutinize their every detail in thousands of national online platforms.

Take a look at the candidates, visit their websites and if you find them worthy of being given a chance, share their candidacy with friends and family.

May the best person win!
