Julie Kohler of National Women’s Law Center Discusses Their New Analysis of Women Legislators

2 mins read

Julie Kohler, a Fellow in Residence at the National Women’s Law Center (NWLC), discusses their new analysis which shows that women are more effective state legislators than men. We discuss the implications of these findings and discuss examples of how women elected to legislative positions have used this power to pass progressive legislation like Paid Family Leave or expansions to voting rights.

Like many of you, I was driven to "do something" after the 2016 election. The "something" I did was to launch the Electorette podcast. My aim with The Electorette was not to analyze every single tweet; nor to rant ad nauseum about just how unhinged the voice behind said tweets are. What I do want to accomplish is further the sense of community and strength experienced during the Women's Marches around the world, provide some solutions for getting out of this mess and to bring brilliant minds (lady minds) together, so that together we can move towards creating the open, welcoming democracy that we know America truly is. #TheFutureIsFemale
