What I want is someone who is morally and ethically correct... Right now we need a little peace." REUTERS/Lucy Nicholson

"It's a very male-dominated profession... When you walk into the room they assume you're the nurse or the assistant as opposed to the actual surgeon," Liau said. "I think ultimately the goal would be to be gender-blind completely, so the fact that we're even talking about having a female president as a novelty is in a way sad", neurosurgeon Linda Liau said.

(L-R) Producer Charity Burton, producer/director/actor Ursula Burton, and producer/director Maria Burton, of Five Sisters Productions pose for a portrait in Los Angeles, California, United States, May 18, 2016. Women comprised 19 percent of all directors, writers, executive producers, producers, editors, and cinematographers working on the top 250 U.S. grossing films of 2015, according to San Diego State University's Center for the Study of Women in Television & Film. Charity said: "If Hillary is president then she is the commander-in-chief... And then women are seen as powerful figures, which will then translate to: "Oh okay, if a woman can run a country, a woman can run a company; then a woman can run a restaurant; then a woman can run a studio.' It gives validity to women." Maria said: "A woman in power in the real world... little kids see that and it doesn't seem uncommon. Then maybe women directors are hired more, and they put more interesting women on screen." Ursula said: "Having a woman president opens up the presidency for girls and it will shift the perception for boys of what girls can do." REUTERS/Lucy Nicholson

International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 11 union electrician Hannah Cooper, 28, works on a project site in Los Angeles, California, United States, June 21, 2016. Only 2.4 percent of U.S. electricians were women in 2014, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. "Growing up in my society I was constantly aware or told, whether it was straight out or implied, what women can't do, and what a woman's place is, and how a woman should behave, and what a woman is capable of, whether it's intellectually or physically," Cooper said. "I feel like [a woman president] would chip away at that in the psyche of the next generation." REUTERS/Lucy Nicholson

Kelly said: "You have to have thick skin to be anyone in the trade, to be a woman in the trade you have to have a particularly thick skin... I think that one of the reasons we don't have enough women in the trade is because there just aren't enough women role models and having a woman president would be exciting. It should be normal that a woman can be leader of the country." REUTERS/Lucy Nicholson
