#AtTheTable: Women, Politics and the Future | DNC Twitter Town Hall
August 18, 2020 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
12pm ET/11am CT/9am PT
Even before women were allowed to participate in our Democracy by voting, they were running for office to change our country. Fast forward 100 years since women were given the right to vote, and there are a historic number of women in Congress, yet we still account for less than 25%, even though they are more than 50% of the population. Women of color and LGBTQ+ women are even more underrepresented in these roles. This Twitter Town Hall will feature Emerge alums and Democratic women from across the country who are running for Congress this year. The discussion will focus on the priorities and policies that Democratic women on the ballot in November want to see pushed forward in Congress, why we need more women’s representation in our decision-making rooms and the role that women will play in politics going forward as candidates and the base of the Democratic Party.
