ourselves to being a force for change. Yes, we talk about gender and the unique circumstances of the women. But for us, it’s not only about gender, it’s about an agenda for the United States of America. That why we need Emerge Maryland -- to bring more women in to run for office." -Senator Barbara Mikulski
