On the 16th episode of the #VoteHerIn series, a partnership project of Two Broads Talking Politics/Kelly Pollock and Rebecca Sive, author of Vote Her In: Your Guide to Electing Our First Woman President, you’ll hear a very special interview with Ilyse Hogue, President of NARAL Pro-Choice America, on the occasion of its 50th anniversary. Kelly and Rebecca discuss attacks on reproductive freedom and what listeners can do to stay informed and fight back; Ilyse’s activism journey and path to NARAL; and what’s next for NARAL.
Ilyse Hogue has been president of NARAL Pro-Choice America since 2013 and previously worked at advocacy organizations including MoveOn.org and Media Matters. During her tenure at NARAL, Ilyse has pushed the national conversation around abortion access to be one of fundamental human rights and self-determination for women. She has run successful campaigns defending abortion access on the national and state level, and supporting winning candidates for Congress who made reproductive freedom central to their agenda.
