This Rocks.

In the past year women have dramatically increased their political involvement and the nation is the better for it. This podcast connects you with some of those breaking glass ceilings all over the nation. Very cool stuff, especially for someone who is, herself, running for office as a first time candidate.

Inspiring

Love this podcast. It really is inspiring to listen to all the women running who come from such different backgrounds and have different reasons for wanting to take action. That alone would be enough but it’s also fascinating to learn about all the various elected offices across the country.
