The communication challenge I was attempting to solve was finding a way to make running for office more accessible for women who may or may not have had an interest in politics.
My project, Breaking 19, is an online collection of resources and organizations that would enable women to access information about running for political office. Although many resources and organizations are already in place, they are not easily found. Through this online platform, women will be able to locate organizations, read news about current political events, find resources for funding political campaigns, and engage with other women interested in running for political office.
Similarly, women looking to donate to causes that support female politicians would also have access to the platform, and the opportunity to engage with the same content.
