Join us for an exhilarating conversation with Sarah Marshall, co-host of the podcast You’re Wrong About, and Christina Reynolds of EMILY’s List and co-author of the recently-released Run to Win: Lessons in Leadership for Women Changing the World (with a foreword by Kamala Harris).
For the past thirty-five years, EMILY’s List has helped the campaigns of thousands of pro-choice Democratic women, but the hardest part has always been convincing more women to run. Then Donald Trump was elected, and something shifted into place. American women, who were furious and frustrated were looking for a way to channel their outrage into action, united in proclaiming, If that guy can get elected, why not me?
The day after the 2016 election, dozens of women searched out an old sign-up link buried on the EMILY’s List website. By Thanksgiving, those dozens had grown to a few thousand. And that was only the beginning.
