In this article it is recognized that women in politics is decreasing. The number of women in congress declined for the first time in 30 years after the 2010 elections. Women occupy 16.4% of congressional posts. This remains a concern for many. Ms. Gillibrand argues that an infusion of women into the political system would go a long way toward changing the tone in Congress, a male-dominated world of fiercely clashing egos. She believes that with more women in congress all the arguing and pride of men could be decreased. She says throughout the article various times that an increase of women in congress would improve our government significantly due to the ability to really think things through and compromising. The main purpose of this article is for women to make a point as to why women should have a bigger part in the U.S. government. Anita Woolley, a professor of organisational behaviour at Carnegie Mellon, and Thomas Malone, a professor of management at MIT found that, “There’s little correlation between a group’s collective intelligence and the IQs of its individual members. But if a group includes more women, its collective intelligence rises”. Another purpose of this article is to explain that women are just as capable as men when it comes to politics, and some even believe that they can in some instances be more capable.It is voiced that with a less combative approach women could be more successful. This articles targeted audience consists of the public who are electing people into office. It could give people a different view on women in office and maybe want them to try adding females in congress.
