Helen Holton of NFWL on Women in Elected Office
"Women in leadership roles bring a very different dynamic that tends to be a little more balanced, more compassionate ... women tend to get down to a level that says, '˜Who will this impact, and what will the long-term effect be? And how does it impact families, community and the quality of life?"
Women make up about half the population, but are underrepresented in elected office. Helen Holton, Board Member of the National Foundation for Women Legislator discusses obstacles that women in politics face. Visit National Foundation for Women Legislators on the web
