Episode 93: Women in Politics (re-release)

Countries like the US and UK may thrive in many areas, but not when it comes to women in politics. The US Congress is about 20% women and in the UK, Parliament is 23% female. Yes, it's an improvement on former decades, but in 2016 why aren't more women holding power at a national level?

We have two fantastic, outspoken guests on today's show, which was first released in early 2015: Megan Murphy, former Financial Times Washington bureau chief (now with Bloomberg), and Madeleine Kunin, former and first woman governor of Vermont. She once ran against Bernie Sanders.

We discuss the landscape for women in politics today, what life as a female politician is actually like, and why it's so important that more women go into politics in the first place. For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy
