Women in Politics

Political analyst Joni Balter chats with former Washington Governor Christine Gregoire and political consultant Lisa MacLean about the sting of shattering the glass ceiling.

September 15, 2016

If elected, Hillary Clinton would become the first woman to serve as president of the United States, a major milestone in addressing the gender gap among political leaders. However, events in the campaign have highlighted concerns about double standards for male and female candidates. Does Clinton face an excess of scrutiny compared to what her opponent faces? Do people view female candidates differently from male candidates at both the national and local level? KCTS 9 Political Analyst Joni Balter chats with former Washington Governor Christine Gregoire and Lisa MacLean, founder of Moxie Media political consulting in Seattle.
