WOMEN IN POLITICS:
CHALLENGES AND TRENDS

Join us as we take a close look at women in politics in Massachusetts.  How are women faring in contested races?  What are the trends with respect to women running for elected office?  Are there unique challenges facing women once elected?  What can or should be done to reverse any trends that are preventing women from pursuing and holding elected office?
