Your Call: What changes with more women in politics?

ellen_malcolm.jpg

 On the March 14th edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with EMILY’s List founder Ellen R. Malcolm. In her new book, “When Women Win,” Malcolm retraces recent history when women candidates weren’t taken seriously. For the last 30 years, EMILY’s List has aimed to change that. There are more women in politics today, but they still hold only 20 percent of the seats in the House and Senate. Why has progress been so slow? What happens when more women get elected? It's Your Call Rose Aguilar and you.

Guest: 

Ellen R. Malcolm, Founder & Chair of the Board, EMILY's List
