Women in American Politics

In this podcast, the history of women and politics is explored ahead of the US presidential election.

As we near the centennial of the 19th Amendment—and with the possibility of America’s first female president on the horizon—History Talk takes a look at women’s role in American politics.

Guests Kimberly Hamlin, Susan Hartmann and David Steigerwald discuss the impact of women’s suffrage in the 20th century, the emergence of female political candidates, and the cultural and institutional hurdles faced by women seeking public office.
