Example text

Many women have sought the office of president, beginning with Victoria Woodhull in 1872. Yet “some of the women who have made exploratory bids and those who have actually run for president are not recognized by many historians, rhetoricians, and political scientists, as well as the press” (Gutgold, 2006, 6). ” and the answer is complicated. Anderson, for one, claims, “as a nation, we have yet to imagine a woman president of the United States” (2002, 127). One important element of the public imagination is the prevailing meme of the male president, the masculine office.

These are all rhetorical events which participated in the transformation and transmission of the meme regarding the status of women. My example should demonstrate a significant means of cultural evolution, the meme. As Kate Distin argues, “A form of selection must occur in minds and P U BLIC WOMAN , PRIVAT E WIFE 35 culture, and we should expect to see the preservation of those ideas and skills with the best fit to their environment, and the extinction of those without” (2005, 14). It seems that most reasonable people in the United States today would agree, particularly since a woman nearly made it to the White House in 2008, that the idea that “women are inferior to men” is an idea that does not fit well with the current sociopolitical environment.

Think of the civil rights heroes and foot-soldiers who marched, protested and risked their lives to bring about the end of segregation and Jim Crow. Because of them, I grew up taking for granted that women could vote. Because of them, my daughter grew up taking for granted that children of all colors could go to school together. Because of them, Barack Obama and I could wage a hard fought campaign for the Democratic nomination. Because of them, and because of you, children today will grow up taking for granted that an African American or a woman can yes, become President of the United States.
