1.1k votes 247 voters

List Rules Vote up the candidates who you think would be the best for women.

Women voters make up over half of the electorate in the United States, and the votes of women propelled Barack Obama to the presidency in both 2008 and 2012. With the 2016 election looming, every potential candidate in both of the parties are trying to appeal to this huge and vital block of voters. Are there any women-friendly candidates out there?

Of the many people running for president in 2016, which are the most friendly to women? Is it an obvious choice, like Democrats Hillary Clinton, or Bernie Sanders? Or is it a more traditional conservative, like Marco Rubio or Ted Cruz? What about the rhetoric of people like Donald Trump or Ben Carson, candidates looked at by some to be "anti-women?" Maybe they'll turn out to be the best for women after all. From their stances on women's rights, equal pay, women's healthcare, birth control, and abortions, which of the presidential hopefuls will help out females across the country?

Vote up the candidates in either party you feel will be the best for women, and vote down the ones you think will be a disaster.
