The amendment giving women the right to vote is almost 100 years old yet only 19.4 % of Congress members are women and 12% are governors. Let's talk about why! Is law making a man's job or can we find our voice?

Patricia Russo of The Yale Women's Campaign School joins us along with local Legislators Laura Schaefer from Nassau and Monica Martinez of Suffolk , from both sides of the aisle, to talk about women as political leaders in today's environment and going forward. 

You can have a say in how your city, state, or country is run. Come and discuss our common needs and experiences as women with an ability to make a difference as leaders, volunteers, citizens, activists, operatives, candidates and so much more...
