Why she’s a badass: Since the 2016 election, Vilardi’s VoteRunLead organization has taught 3,000 women how best to hone their individual skills and run for public office through online and in-person courses. In total, they’ve taught nearly 26,000 women how to run in four years, according to their Facebook page. One of their trainees, Ilhan Omar, has become the first Somalian-American woman to be elected to any state legislature. Now, Vilardi wants to up their game even further, with an aim to train 30,000 female future leaders how to run (and win) by 2020.
