The Women’s March to Office

If 1992 was the “Year of the Woman,” then 2018 has the potential to be the Year of Women.

Since the first Women’s March, following the inauguration of President  Donald Trump, there has been an obvious uptick in female participation in politics. More women are getting involved in political campaigns and there is the potential for a record of number female candidates for Congress.

Libby Post, of Capital Women, Amanda Farias, of New American Leaders, and Brette McSweeney, of Eleanor’s Legacy, joined Poozer Politics to talk about the obstacles that have prevented women from running in the past, the recruitment of candidates and preparing female candidates for campaigns.

The episode highlights training programs by Eleanor’s Legacy, the decision by Farias to run for office and dealing with sexist attitudes toward women candidates.
