This panel discussion is part of the nearly yearlong Challenges and Opportunities in 2020 series presented by The American Assembly and The Academy of Political Science, with additional support from the Interdisciplinary Center for Innovative Theory and Empirics. The series fosters conversations that explore undercurrents and themes affecting the upcoming election and the integrity of—and trust in—our democratic institutions.
There will be a Question & Answer segment following four speaker presentations. The Question & Answer feature enables attendees to post questions during the webinar. In addition to reflecting on the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, panelists will discuss women's political leadership, participation, and rights.
