The Houston Seminar presents Tipping the Balance: Women Legislators, Reporters, and Voters
Observers of the 2020 U.S. elections can’t help but have noticed the increased visibility of women in all aspects of the political process, particularly as office holders, voters, and news pundits. What effect might this visibility have on legislation and legislative paralysis, on candidate success, and on understanding of current events?
Elizabeth Gregory will guide the audience in an exploration of the recent history of women’s expanding representation in policy-making roles in business and government. Why did it take so long, how do gender, race, and ethnicity intersect here, and what could this expansion of voices mean for the future?
