Vote Like a Mother and Change Our Society

Let me ask you a basic question: how important to you are the values of compassion, empathy, and kindness? Pretty important, right?

Here’s another question: when you watch our political process on the news, to what degree do you think our elected leaders are acting out of compassion, empathy, and kindness?

Do you realize that you have the power to impact that? No really. You actually do!

What would this country look like if women got LOUD about the issues we are passionate about? What if we spoke with our voices, our money, AND OUR VOTES?

What if we held our elected officials to a standard slightly higher than we all hold our toddlers to?

  • “No, you can’t just take someone else’s things.”

  • “We don’t make fun of people and call them names.”

  • “When you see someone who needs help, go ask them how you can help them.”

How would this country look if we all voted in alignment with those values? How would it look if we kept in mind the benefit of the entire country, not just the benefit of a few people?

So many times, the values of compassion, empathy, and kindness are ascribed to women, and as a result, they’re seen as soft or weak.

This week’s interview challenges that notion.

This week, we’re talking to Sara Berliner, founder of Vote Like a Mother. She’s here to tell her story of how a small cardboard sign turned into an activism movement that is mobilizing women to change our society for the better.

Listen. Share. And go vote like a mother.
