Share Women and Politics 2014: Set the Agenda for Who to Watch

Event Details

Join us on Women’s Equality Day, Monday, August 26th, from 6-8pm, as we bring together experts on women and politics to discuss the female candidates to watch and the issues to follow in 2014.

Women’s eNews has spent more than 13 years keeping women in the headlines and the bylines, and reporting real news about female candidates. Our daily editorial product advances women’s political and economic empowerment through the delivery of unbiased news.

Our job in the coming months is to consistently keep the community informed of the pro- and anti-women candidates who are running—and who is supporting them all. Given the stakes in 2014, we hope you will join us to learn more about the work of Women’s eNews, and our election campaign coverage.

Women’s eNews editor Corinna Barnard will take you inside the editorial process for our political coverage and introduce a series of short presentations by expert leaders, including Sandra Fluke and Glynda C. Carr, followed by an interactive Q&A and networking time.

Join us to share your opinions and let us know your women to watch, and the issues that matter most to you.
