The Gender Gap: Covering the 2020 Election for Women

2020 marks the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage in America. With the most number of women to ever run for a single party’s presidential nomination, and coming off a historic “pink wave” in the 2018 midterms, this panel will explore how two leading female news executives, Candi Carter, Executive Producer for “The View” and Terry Hurlbutt, VP and Executive Editor for ABC News Digital are leading their teams to cover the 2020 election cycle, and politics in general, for the female audience and what makes this election so different from any other in U.S. history.
