American Politics: 100 Years After Suffrage
One hundred years
after winning the right to vote, what are the current opportunities and
challenges for women pursuing elected office? What are the roles they
play as voters and as leaders of social movements? And what can we expect
from the 2020 presidential election cycle, which includes a record number of
women candidates? This State of Democracy event features a panel
discussion among leading scholars and regional political leaders: Susan
Carroll, Professor of Political Science and Senior Scholar at Rutgers
University’s Center for American Women and Politics; Joanie Mahoney, Chief Operating
Officer at SUNY-ESF and former Onondaga County Executive; and New York State
Assemblywoman Pam Hunter. Moderating and participating in the panel will
be Kristi Anderson, Chapple Family Professor of
Citizenship and Democracy Emeritus at Syracuse University’s Maxwell School,
Cazenovia Town Councilor, and a regular panelist on WCNY’s Ivory Tower
