Women in politics

Hilary Rosen’s comments about Ann Romney have sparked lively discussions about women and politics. The last 24-hours have been filled with talks of women in politics, the gender gap in politics, and the tough decisions moms across the country have to make when it comes to working and raising their children.

On today’s show, Chuck talked with Betsy Myers, founding director of Bentley University’s Center for Women and Business and former chair for Women for Obama, about the balance women must find between working and raising their families. The two  discussed whether these kinds of talks should even be at the forefrunt of politics to begin with.

We also had an all-female panel today with The Washington Post’s Anne Kornblut, the Bernard Center’s Michelle Bernard, and Former Sen. Blanche Lincoln, D-Ark. The panelists had an in-depth discussion about women in politics, and Sen. Lincoln spoke from her own experience about how there’s a bit of a double standard for women who are in politics.

Check out both of these insightful discussions in the videos above.
