Women's History Month Panel Discussion


Thursday, March 27, 2014

WPI and CCPS co-sponsored a women's history month panel discussion. The panel discussed partisanship and polarization in the U.S. Congress and whether more women can help solve these problems. On the panel were Mickey Edwards, Nancy Johnson, and Barbara Kennelly, all of whom served in the U.S. House of Representatives with Gingrich.

Sean Theriault also signed copies of his new book, The Gingrich Senators: The Roots of Partisan Warfare in Congress.
