In 2017 women make up less than 20% of Congress, even though they constitute over 50% of the American population. As more women take seats in elected offices, are priorities shifting? Are conversations evolving? BHS Director of Public History Julie Golia leads this discussion with a panel of ground-breakers, including Christine Quinn, the first female Speaker of the NYC Council and former mayoral candidate.
This is the second in a three-part series celebrating the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage in New York State. Reserve your spot for Part 1 and Part 3.
