Jennifer Palmieri on the 2020 US election

Julia speaks to Jennifer Palmieri who was Communications Director on Hillary Clinton’s 2016 Presidential campaign and has been on the frontline of US politics for the last 20 years. They discuss the upcoming US election and whether or not we can trust what the polls are telling us this time around. Jennifer speaks about the way gender is influencing voters and voting outcomes, and reflects on how different this campaign feels to when Hillary Clinton ran in 2016. Jennifer also talks about why she thinks women need to stop playing a man’s game and change the way the game works. She also speaks about seeing history through a different lens and her friendship with Monica Lewinksy. “Women have to see that our success is linked to the success of other women…I felt like I didn’t need the help of other women, that I was going to make it on my own… What I’ve come to appreciate is that if you want to take it to the next level, you need that sisterhood to support you and you need to be a part of it.”
