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.
