Women belong in the House

Going Purple in the Peach State: GA-06

Episode Summary

Just a fortnight away from Election Day, we’re talking about what’s going down in Georgia. Specifically, we’re looking at the legacies of 2016 and 2018, the record number of Republican women running nationally for the House this November, and the complicated role of incumbency advantage in one particular race.

Episode Notes

In this episode, you'll hear from Tori Taylor, co-executive director of Swing Left; A'shanti Gholar, president of Emerge America; former Governor Christine Whitman; former Representative Susan Molinari; Kelly Dittmar and Debbie Walsh of the Center for American Women and Politics at the Eagleton Institute of Politics at Rutgers University; and Wendy Schiller from Brown University. 

On Wonder Media Network's flagship show, Host Jenny Kaplan seeks to understand the state of gender representation in office and asks how Congress would change if it looked more like the people it represents. This season, we're featuring the daring women who are stepping up to lead during one of the most challenging years in American history.

Women belong in the House is produced by Grace Lynch and Liz Smith, with special help from Luisa Garbowit.
