Recording: How a Record Number of Women Ran and Won in 2018, Mar 10, 2019

Before the 2018 mid-term elections, just 20% of U.S. Congressional lawmakers were women. But the 2018 elections sent a historic number of women to the halls of Congress. The 2018 mid-term election helped change the face of government. Our panel discusses the pink wave – what encouraged women to run, how did they win over their male counterparts and what does the future look like with more women in office?
