Jennifer Steinhauer, Washington correspondent for The New York Times, moderates a panel discussion in Washington, D.C., with four of the 131 female members of the 116th Congress, the largest and most diverse representation of women in that body’s history.
Panelists include Rep. Susan Brooks (R-Ind.), a member since 2012 who has pledged to work for bipartisan and innovative solutions to the nation’s most difficult problems; Rep. Sharice Davids (D-Kan.), one of the first Native American women elected to the House who centers her career on bringing more opportunities to the middle class; Rep. Carol Miller (R-W. Va.), whose key priorities include job creation, innovating and improving infrastructure and supporting her state’s energy industries; and Rep. Lauren Underwood (D-Ill.), the youngest black woman to serve in Congress who is focused on gun violence prevention and ensuring quality, affordable health care.
Don’t miss this rare opportunity to hear these trailblazing women share their personal perspectives on what it means to be a woman — and a woman in power — in 2019.
Joining them onstage will be photojournalist Elizabeth D. Herman, whose portraits are featured in the new book “The Women of the 116th Congress: Portraits of Power,” included with your ticket purchase.
