The theme of female ambition isn’t new but it got a new spokesperson this year when Sen. Kamala Harris (@kamalaharris) became the first woman VP. I am beyond excited that this milestone has finally been achieved. But I’m faced with some questions.
I have come to realize that this account of ambition is wrong. Truthfully, I am more ambitious now than I was ten years ago. It’s just that the world doesn’t recognize ambition in women in their homes. For the world to see ambition in women, they want to see them in a power suit behind a prominent desk — yet again, another relic from our history of men defining everything from our institutions to our school schedules. I’m ready to put my ambition back in plain view.
