We're unabashedly shining a nonpartisan light on women running for office, in the hopes that we can help elect more women to the halls of power and affect positive change in Washington. Each week we'll ask questions and explore ways in which we as individuals can help to alter the ineffective status quo in government, and we will introduce you to a different woman candidate from across the country who is running the race of her life.
||CleanEpisode 6 MOTHERS, DAUGHTERS, LEADERS||Shining a bright light on the mothers inspiring the daughters who are running to make history, or who they themselves have blazed trails on our behalf. Candidate spotlight ONE: In New Hampshire a republican mother/daughter duo is running for the state legislature. 19 year old Virginia Drye, and her mother Margaret Drye. Candidate spotlight TWO: Former republican, turned democratic mom Cheryl Nunn and her democratic daughter, Dawn Nunn are fired up and running for the legislature in Utah.||9/20/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanEpisode 5 WOMEN CANDIDATES AND THE MEDIA - PART 2||Why two parts? Because one show simple isn’t enough to adequately cover the pervasive and unfair way in which the media covers female candidates, and we have to hold them to account. We’re also examining social media and how it has become a necessary tool, or necessary evil for political campaigns. Finally, in our Candidate Spotlight, meet Jeannine Lee Lake, who chose to run as a direct result of the election of Donald J Trump. She’s going head to head for a congressional seat in Indiana against Mike Pence’s older brother, Greg.||9/13/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanEpisode 4 WOMEN CANDIDATES AND THE MEDIA – PART 1||We can do better. We ought to do better and elect more women to office. And – very importantly – we ought to hold the media to account for their unfair, unbalanced and often highly misogynistic coverage of women candidates. Also, on this episode, we’re jumping back in with the Gretchen Whitmer campaign, canvassing door to door. And in our candidate spotlight, you will meet a pioneer in Rashida Tlaib, who is poised to be the very first Muslim Congresswomen. This is what change sounds like!||9/6/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanEpisode 3 RUNNING WHILE WOMAN||On this episode, we try to answer the following questions: Why do people judge women’s qualifications different then men’s qualifications? What does it mean to be a “qualified” woman candidate? Is it possible that when a woman is overly qualified, this may carry a negative connotation for some voters? We will also introduce you to a fresh new face in the person of Morgan Murtaugh. At 26 years old, this vibrant GOPer is the youngest person running for Congress.||8/30/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanEpisode 2 RUN LIKE A WOMAN||On this episode, as more women are running for office, we will share some of the exciting progress is already happening right beneath our noses. Stereotypes are being shattered. Traditional female traits and experiences are being embraced as powerful assets that will serve as the building blocks to transformational leadership. Also, Tracy sits down for an in depth interview with Gretchen Whitmer, still basking in the glow of her Michigan Primary win. And, meet, Betsy Dirksen Londrigan from Central IL, who will share her very compelling story for jumping into the Congressional race.||8/23/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanEpisode 1 WHAT’S OLD IS NEW AGAIN||In this episode, we look at the EPIC number of women who are picking up the baton and running for elected office. 1992 was also labeled “The Year of the Woman.” What do 1992 and 2018 have in common? And what can we learn from both election years, moving forward? Finally meet the trailblazing Deb Halaand, a Single mom who once lived on food stamps while putting herself through college, and is now running to be one of the first Native American women in Congress.||8/23/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
