Brooklyn Historical Society: Virtual Program | Women + Power: ELECTORAL POWER
Event by Brooklyn Historical Society.
No one knows this better than Stacey Abrams, the first black woman in the United States to become a major-party gubernatorial nominee. In 2018, after witnessing the gross mismanagement of the election by the office of the Georgia Secretary of State, Abrams launched Fair Fight to ensure every Georgian has a voice in our election system. As we continue the Women + Power series, Raquel Willis, activist, writer, and Director of Communications for the Ms. Foundation, sits down for a one-on-one conversation with Abrams about gender, race, politics and electoral equity; the changing impact of women on our democracy; how elected women leaders alter the governing game; and the struggles women face in seats of political power today.
