What we’re seeing is tremendous enthusiasm.
Since 2016, we’ve watched women rack up unprecedented wins in statehouses, city halls, and even Congress — and thousands more are throwing their hats into the ring. How did factors like Donald Trump’s win and #MeToo influence this wave, and why does the movement seem to be taking hold now? Writer Rebecca Traister (“All the Single Ladies”) leads a discussion with Christine Matthews, president of Bellwether Research and consulting; Ashley Nickloes, a candidate running for a Tennessee Congressional seat; political pollster Celinda Lake; and Michelle De La Isla, mayor of Topeka, Kansas. They talk about the challenges women face as they attempt to make 2018 “The Year of the Woman” in American politics.
