Virtual Program | Women + Power: ELECTORAL POWER

Overview

A century after white women won the right to vote, gender still plays an out-sized role on both sides of the ballot box: from those who vote, to those who run for office.

No one knows this better than Stacey Abrams, the first black woman in the United States to become a major-party gubernatorial nominee. In 2018, after witnessing the gross mismanagement of the election by the office of the Georgia Secretary of State, Abrams launched Fair Fight to ensure every Georgian has a voice in our election system. As we continue the Women + Power series, Raquel Willis, activist, writer, and Director of Communications for the Ms. Foundation, sits down for a one-on-one conversation with Abrams about gender, race, politics and electoral equity; the changing impact of women on our democracy; how elected women leaders alter the governing game; and the struggles women face in seats of political power today.

This program is presented as part of the series Women + Power: 100 Years After the 19th Amendment, which looks at the relationship between gender, power, and the ongoing work toward equality in the century since a landmark movement.
