The Seattle City Council’s recent election results (where a majority of incoming members are female) brings us one step closer to political gender equality. Some say this is a new age for women and political influence, but historically, women have always played a role in politics. In ‘Belle La Follette’, Santa Clara University’s Nancy Unger shines a light on one particular woman whose resolve, activism, and impact were typical of other women in the Progressive Era. Unger will share why—both in the past and today—women are often the key advisers and changemakers of American society. Find out why The New York Times called La Follette “the least known yet most influential of all the American women who have had to do with public affairs” and what her legacy has to say about other women in politics.
