Study Groups:

Breaking Ground: Running as the “First” of your Community - led by Christine C. Quinn

4:00 pm

Week Three

Breaking the barrier

Breaking the barrier of being the "first" from a community to gain elected office is not easy. In fact, it rarely occurs the first time it is attempted.

That said the act of running - even if you do not win - is critical to eventually breaking the glass ceiling and to forcing political change. This week's study group will analyze and discuss the amount of effort and planning required for victory and the positive results of running and not winning.

Room: Littauer 166, HKS

Critical Mass: What Happens When Women Start to Rule the World - led by Jay Newton-Small

4:00 pm

Week Four:

East Wing/West Wing: Before Hillary Clinton’s East Wing invasion in the 1990s, few women had served in the West Wing. Now women make up nearly 30% of the West Wing and Cabinet. They band together to help one another stay in the loop when men try and cut them out, and to lobby the president when they feel strongly about an issue. A look at the powerful sisterhood in one of the ultimate boys’ clubs.

Guest: Karen Finney, former Hillary Clinton spokeswoman, MSNBC contributor

Location: Faculty Dining Room, HKS
