That’s the question Chelsea Clinton and a host of other well-known women in politics are hoping to answer tomorrow night.
An event entitled “Running in Heels: Where are the Women Candidates for 2012 – and How Can We Get More of Them?” will be held at 92Y, beginning at 8 p.m. ET on Wednesday, March 28. Introductions will be made by Cindi Leive, Editor-in-chief of Glamour magazine and glamour.com, which together reach 15 million women a month. Clinton will be the moderator; she is a board member of the Clinton Foundation and Clinton Global Initiative, and is also a special correspondent for NBC News.
The conversation will focus on how to get more women to join the conversation – either by running for office and getting into politics and policy-making – and how the country can benefit from their participation.
- Christine Quinn – Speaker of the New York City Council.
- Nicolle Wallace – Best-selling author of Eighteen Acres and It’s Classified, political commentator and former White House communications director under President George W. Bush.
- Abby Huntsman Livingston – Daughter of former presidential candidate Jon Huntsman. She most recently worked on his campaign and previously worked for ABC News and for Good Morning America.
