Raising Ms. President, the documentary by Kentucky native Kiley Lane Parker, is an inspiration to all of us here at HerKentucky. For me, it stirred up long-forgotten dreams of serving as a legislator or a lobbyist. For Sarah Stewart Holland, it was a call to action to begin her political candidacy.
More important than our own reactions to Ms. Parker's film, however, is the message of getting girls involved in the political process. Whether or not they ultimately run for office, it's such an important message for young women to know that they can get involved.
If you'll be in the Louisville area tomorrow night, I encourage you to attend the viewing of Raising Ms. President at the Brown Theatre. Following the film, Ms. Parker will lead a roundtable discussion, and you can learn more about the ways that Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana and Louisville Girls Leadership are preparing the young women of our communities to be the leaders of the next generation!
