Hillary Clinton’s presidential run and the recently-elected female majority in the Seattle City Council has sparked a local and national conversation on women in politics. This Women’s Funding Alliance discussion will dive into the gender dynamics present in politics on a national, state, and local level. Debbie Walsh (Center for American Women and Politics) will appear in conversation with Liz Berry (National Women’s Political Caucus of Washington) to explore how gender influences candidate strategy, voter engagement, expectations, media coverage, electoral outcomes, and whether America is ready for a female president.

About sheswithmeseattle

She's With Me is the brain child of three feminists who got tired of emailing each other every time they caught wind of a womanist event, so they created a separate space to house their feminist calendar. The benefits would be twofold: fewer emails cluttering up their inboxes, and more people learning about Seattle's growing feminist community. She's With Me aims to be a feminist hub, where all the goings on of different organizations are collected in one place. Our plans for the site include reviews/write-ups of events, interviews with local feminist activists, news updates, and essays, poetry, and art by feminists. The Fourth Wave of Feminism is here, and She's With Me will be the feminist scrap book documenting our herstory as it unfolds.
