The “pink wave” is not just an idea, it’s a reality. What is it like to run for local or state office as a woman in 201-2019? what are the expected and unexpected challenges, pitfalls rewards and lessons learned, in doing so? What is the future of women political leaders in the US today? Five women of diverse backgrounds who ran for office or managed campaigns in MA during 2018-2019 will participate in a panel to address these questions and others.
