“This series of life-changing events was not without controversy,” Swift said.
The ensuing debate over the role of working mothers overshadowed the real issues, Swift said, such as the fact that an overwhelming percentage of women have to work as a matter of financial necessity.
“In all of the roles I have in the private sector I have the opportunity to reach personal and professional goals, work in issues I’m passionate about, and be an involved and active mother,” Swift said.
Pursuing a career in politics will provide an opportunity to impact issues they’re passionate about in a meaningful way, Swift said.
