Portraits of Power: Debbie Wasserman Schultz

This image of Licia Ranzolli (the Italian representative to the EU Parliament) went around the web like wildfire. A politician working while caring for her new born? Unheard of, she might as well dance around the room in her bra.

recently I read The Voice, and article in the Vogue about congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and to my delight I found that she also takes her children to work with her. What a great roll model, She is the newly appointed Democratic National Committee leader, and not only she has her own children at work, her staff also gets to bring in their little ones when they do not have child care. I think it is unreasonable that we have to act like men in order to achieve success in our careers.  The definition of "getting the job done" needs to be changed in our society, and yes woman can do it all. We need more fearless woman like Ms. Schultz and Kathrine Switzer, to step out of the norm, and not fallow rules in order to change the way woman are expected to be.
