Women in Politics Roundtable

Thursday, 10 April, 2014

Recent elections in the United States and around the world have placed unprecedented numbers of women in leadership positions in local, state, and national government. Regrettably women still hold just 18 percent of seats in the U.S. Congress and remain under-represented in most other political offices in this country and around the world. What are the causes and consequences of women holding leadership positions in government at different levels and in different political contexts?

Join us for a roundtable discussion and Q&A. The featured speakers include Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero as well as Sarah Fulton (Texas A&M University), Melanie Hughes (University of Pittsburgh), Jana Morgan (UTK), Tracy Osborn (University of Iowa), and Leslie Schwindt-Bayer (Rice University).
