Women in Charge: How Politics is Being Transformed

A discussion and book signing hosted by the University of Chicago Institute of Politics

Cost: Free


Join the University of Chicago Institute of Politics as it welcomes Jay Newton-Small of Time Magazine and author of BROAD INFLUENCE: How Women Are Changing the Way America Works. Newton-Small argues that when women reach between 20 and 30 percent of any organization — be it the legislature, the military, or a corporate board, they fundamentally change how it operates. America is finally reaching that tipping point, led by the women of Washington. Newton-Small will elaborate on this thesis, and explore what the implications of reaching this critical mass are for the future of American politics. She’ll also discuss the impact of the women’s vote in the 2016 races. A book-signing will follow this discussion.
