(OLLI AT UVM PRESENTS) Women in U.S. Electoral Politics: 1872-Present with : Anna Danzinger Halperin, New York Historical Society
The election held on November 3, 2020, was an auspicious one for women. The United States elected our first woman, and first woman of color, to executive office with Senator Kamala Harris becoming Vice President, and a record-breaking number of women were elected to Congress. While the number of women in office is still a far cry from complete gender parity, it is still a moment to reflect on the history of women elected to national office. This presentation traces this history from before women's suffrage through to the present.
