19 Records Broken By Women In 2019 (So Far)
Most Women Running For President
It only took two months into 2019 for six women to formally announce their presidential campaigns. Before now, the largest number of women to announce their presidential candidacy in the same major party’s primary election was two, which happened in 1972 and 1996. Elizabeth Warren, Marianne Williamson, Amy Kobuchar, Kirsten Gillibrand, Tulsi Gabbard, and Kamala Harris (pictured above) are running for the Democratic Party’s nomination. These six women represent a fraction of the twenty (and growing!) Democrats running in the primary but imagine how terrifying it would have been if all twenty of the candidates were men. Thank you, next.
