The Need for More Women In Office and How to Make It Happen


Originally posted at SumofChange.com

Who needs women in office?  Everyone.

That was the title of one of the more powerful panels held at this year’s Pennsylvania Progressive Summit, in Harrisburg, PA.  Sam Bennett, Women’s Campaign Forum President/CEO and former congressional candidate, led the panel discussion which previewed several of the state’s female candidates and elected officials.  Largely discussing the various ways to get more women into public office, the candidates shared their personal stories on why they chose to run for office, how to personally fund your campaign, and discussed the reasons why more women in office is “essential to the health of our nation”.

In the first two videos, Sam Bennett and other panelists outline the major points on why we need more women in public office.  In the third video, Lois K. Herr illustrates how to support other women in running for office.  The final video offers advice on ways to support your own campaign, especially if its your first.
