Women in Politics

Where are the women, why is progress stalled, why does it matter if our political leadership is male-dominated, and what do individuals need to know and do? What is the potential policy impact of Citizens United, and how might it affect women? Here's your opportunity for an unbridled look behind the scenes at what really goes on in politics, how women influence politics, and how politics serve women.
