This is a topic are white house. Reporter catherine lucy has been following and she joins me from washington. Catherine good to have you here. Great to be here catherine. Let's set the stage here. What do the numbers show about. How women have fared in the workforce over the past year. We'll be no as it. Millions of women have left the workforce during the pandemic and for many that has been ju at least in part the pressures of child care and handling remote schooling. An analysis of government data from the national women's law center showed that women's participation in the labor force us slipped to fifty seven percent which is the lowest it been since nineteen eighty eight and overall more than two point. Three million women have dropped out of the labor force during the pandemic. that's compared with one point. Eight million men and so as part of his economic proposal president biden is expected to address what he calls the caregiving economy. Can you explain what he means by that. That's right mark a what we're expecting to hear from the president. You know in the coming weeks as he talks about a big multi trillion dollar investment economic investment. Is it a piece of that is going to be in child. Care and elder care needs now. His administration thinks of this as quote the caregiving economy. And they see these investments as important as investing in things like roads and bridges. They see these.

We're Frustrated. What about YOU?
"Today in our feminist. Utopia governor cuomo resigned and stops kissing young women at weddings or stops being garbage. Human being. I mean he created a toxic work environment not just for the women s but for the men that worked for him to. But we'll get to that. Yes chalet recording on national women's day last year we were on a boat celebrating international women's day with an all female crew for the first time it was amazing and i wish we were back on that boat. We were in a bubble of just being pampered and surrounded by powerful women and it was amazing until covid happened in. it wasn't so amazing and instead of being surrounded in a bubble. We were worried that we were surrounded by five. Rhys but i i was worried. They were gonna cut seattle off because trumpet actually made sounds like well we just isolate seattle. It will spread. We all know how that turned out and happy international women's day. I guess we can start out with some good vibes because today on international women's day joe biden has signed Two executive orders geared toward promoting gender issues. The first executive order establishes a gender policy council within the white house and it's Reformulating that office from the obama administration that was disbanded by trump. But this one is going recognizes. That discrimination happens to both genders. So i think that's a positive thing and we hope that that will lead to more equality not just in the united states but around the world and then the second executive orders directed at the department of education and it Reverses the controversial rule on campus sexual assault and harassment that was issued last year by betsy devos. Donald trump's education secretary. So these are two Positive advancements and we will applaud those with some good vibes and biden also signed an executive order About election rights. And so we'll get into that a little bit more than we talk at the end of the show about. Hr one We can't count on executive orders to save us. But at least women who are on college campuses or more protected now because of that executive order and i am really glad that biden chose to do it today. Yeah we're gonna go from good vibes to pet peeves. I decided Section called pet peeves because this has been highlighted in the news. And it's really annoying me. People miss naming the george floyd trial. It's not george floyd trial. It's derek chauvin trial for the killing of george floyd and we should know derek chavez name as a murderer that he is and when you miss name it and call it. George floyd it places the blame on the victim and causes more pain to the victim's family and misses the point. I think we need to hold. Derek chauvin accountable and make his name famous for being murderer. I think it's the perfect example of a micro aggression that even progressives make without thinking about it and when ted bundy headed trial. We didn't name his victims. We didn't say it was the kimberley trial. It was ted bundy trial. But in this case. I think this is one of those little deep seated things that we don't think about until someone like you pointed out like i hadn't thought about it until i read it in today's research but i hadn't even. I didn't even in all fairness i didn't know the trial was starting so i didn't even know that but we'll do hell no hell of a time finding jurors so the 'cause the videos out there like the Selection process started and then it was halted. There's some concern about whether it's going to be a second degree or a third degree murder charge. So yeah they. They were going to add the third degree murder charge to make sure he doesn't get off on a manslaughter charge. Just go to jail for three years.
Nearly 3 million U.S. women have dropped out the labor force
"Not long after Donald Trump arrived at the White House, he disbanded and office that focused on challenges affecting women. President Biden is now resurrecting it. Women's rights groups hope this will help them make progress on things like paid family leave and affordable child care. Here's NPR's Melissa Block. The wish list on Biden's agenda for women is long restoring an expanding reproductive rights, combating gender based violence, reducing maternal mortality, and he's pitched a slew of economic proposals. Major structural disruption requires major structural change. And I feel like thinking big right now is exactly what we need to do. So now is the time That's the co chair of the Biden administration's new gender Policy Council. Jennifer Klein. You know we're seeing because of the health pandemic because of the economic crisis, and, in fact, take care giving crisis that's been layered on top of it. These are core issues core issues, Klein points out that air hitting women hard and especially women of color. Just look at the most recent jobs numbers. In December, women accounted for all 140,000 of the country's net lost jobs. One factor behind that, with so many schools and day care centers closed because of the coronavirus. Many women have had to drop out of the labor force. That's been disastrous, says Joan Williams, director of the Center for Work Life Law at the University of California, Hastings. Mother's already We're at the breaking point in the United States. I mean, we already had a choc your system that was basically a Rube Goldberg machine and the coronavirus brought that machine crashing down. Williams says. What she wants the Biden administration to do is to recognize that Just as we don't expect workers to get to work without physical infrastructure like bridges and roads. We can't expect workers to get to work without a care infrastructure. What would that care Infrastructure look like for Williams? That would mean subsidized neighborhood based child care, paid family leave Universal, pre K and $15 an hour minimum wage, especially during the pandemic. Single moms have had to choose between putting food on the table and leaving young Children home alone. Now. Part of the reason is because the minimum wages so low that there is no way on God's green Earth that those moms can pay for childcare. The paid caregivers are also reeling from the crunch. President Biden highlighted this when he announced his covert 19 relief plan last month. Let's make sure caregivers mostly women, women of color immigrants. Have the same pay indignity that they deserve. Advocates like I Jen poo, director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance, are heartened by what they're hearing from Biden. Her group represents workers, including nannies, home care workers and housekeepers, actually focusing on how we're going to make Thies jobs, good jobs for the 21st century. That you can take pride in and earn a living wage with benefits. That is a really big breakthrough. Conservatives, though, are leery of an agenda that carries a hefty price tag and they warn, will lead to crushing government regulations. Charmaine Yost is vice president of the Institute for Family Community and Opportunity at the Heritage Foundation. My biggest concern is that all of the proposals that I'm hearing coming from their side of things inevitably seem to come back to big government intervention in government programs. As for raising the minimum wage in the midst of a pandemic, when many businesses are suffering so badly if there were a time that you could create, that would be the perfect time to not Raise the minimum wage. This would be it with such a slim Democratic majority in Congress. Biden's agenda could have a tough time gaining traction. But Fatima Goss Graves, who heads the National Women's Law Center, is undaunted. Her group has issued an ambitious list of 100 demands for Biden's 1st 100 days. Basically, what we're asking this administration and Congress to do is effectively walk into gum. We need them to both undo things that have been harmful and have been Holding this country back and launch us forward in a way that we're stronger for it, Graves adds. This president doesn't have the luxury of coasting in Melissa Block NPR news

How are changes to sexual harassment rules working in schools
"In May, the Department of Education made sweeping changes to title nine regulations Peter Medlin with W J reports on how colleges and universities are coming to terms with new policies. Many advocates in school officials say will chill reporting the new regulations changed the definition of what qualifies as sexual harassment under title nine to meet. The new standard harassment must be quote severe pervasive and objectively offensive. She Wa Patel is the Director of justice for students survivors at the National Women's law center. So these rules kind of in total really just turn title nine on its head as a civil rights law says they raised. The threshold of what schools can choose to ignore, and it's a departure from guidance that's been in place for wrong twenty years if a student isn't being outright denied equal access to a program or activity that might not be enough. So that means some substance would be forced to endure repeated an escalating levels of abuse before they can get help. The new rules also require institutions of higher learning to dismiss reports of harassment the happened off campus. Now, they'd had to put together a separate sexual misconduct policy to apply to those situations. This has ramifications for online harassment especially as many schools move to. More virtual instruction during the pandemic faith Ferber is a student engagement organizer with no your nine. She says, if someone's harassing you in a class zoom meeting that would be covered but if someone is sexually harassing you over facebook and then you have to see them in the zoom classroom that wouldn't necessarily be covered a northern Illinois University. Title Nine Coordinator. Sarah Gardner says they do have procedures to help students. We had the opportunity to see okay even though it doesn't reach this level of conduct how we address it as university but as faith ferber says the problem is that places like and I You could ignore those cases that they choose to, and she says, the Education Department isn't there to protect students either we can't count on our schools can't count on the government. So all we can count on is students and student power to really make a difference in holders schools accountable at a you students held protests last year on the basis of the university was mishandling investigations and the process was slow and apathetic. The university hired another coordinator and Garner says, they're much better equipped to handle their case load. Now, the new regulations are over two thousand pages two, thousand, thirty three to be exact and. The policies themselves fit into the last thirty pages or so the reason the document is so long as so that the Department of Education headed by Betsy Devos is trying to justify why the chains are needed and respond to public comments. She Wally catalysis says there were more than a hundred thousand comments mostly opposing the new rules they were school principal. There were mental health experts over nine hundred trauma specialists joined a letter and raised concern about the rule. So the significant opposition and yet they continue to move forward Sir Garner A, you were one of the many schools that Senate comets harshly not. Many concerns made it into the final regulations. Patel says, the provisions were largely unchanged from what was proposed, but there were also a few changes that weren't even in the proposed rule. So they didn't have a chance to comment. One example is that colleges and universities are now barred from dealing with complaints by people who aren't actively participating in an education program that means a school won't be allowed to investigate a complaint of sexual harassment if the survivor already graduated or they transferred or let's say they dropped out of school because they were sexually assaulted and they don't plan to re enroll and colleges. Could dismiss cases when the respondent who's being accused isn't enrolled or employed by the school but tell that could include professor who retires or who resigns after abuse comes to light. Another chain that wasn't included originally reiterates that the department's guidelines supersede any state law and some of the new title and changes are in conflict with Illinois. State Law one forces those going through an investigation to undergo cross-examination in a live hearing and as Sarah garnered I says, we have a state law that says, you cannot cross examiner one another. This is the price sexual violence and Higher Education Act however now, the federal. Regulations. You must cross examine each other in public comment. It stated that this quote turn educational centers into courts of law and allow for parties to be subjected to quote demeaning inappropriate, and irrelevant probing there waiting for the Illinois Attorney General. Kwami Raoul away in he along with seventeen other attorneys. General is suing the Education Department to block the final rules from going into effect. Garner says they'll find out if they have to proceed with the guidance on August fourteenth there are countless other issues advocates say make the process more difficult for the people involved and for the school conducting the investigation and Peter Mullen.

We've been looking back at the life and legacy of Justice Ginsburg and we'll continue that today in 1993. When President Bill Clinton nominated Justice Ginsburg to the Supreme Court, he referred to her as quote the Thurgood Marshall of Gender Equality Law. Begins work herself sometimes pushed back on the comparison to Marshall and his trail blazing civil rights work. I'll take this opportunity to say I don't like the comparison of me. Deserving Marshall because my life was never in danger. His wass he went to his southern town in the morning. I couldn't be sure he'd be alive at the end of the day. I never had that. Kind of threat. That was Justice Ginsburg, speaking in 2018. While much of Ginsberg's legal work indicated clear understandings of racial discrimination, some critics have called out some of her more personal shortcomings when it came to race, for example, Like most of her male colleagues on the bench, she hired few law clerks who were black or people of color. Joining me now is Fatima Goss Graves, president of the National Women's Law, Center. Fatima, Thanks for being with me. Glad to be with you. So how did racial equality factor into some of justice Ginsburg's early legal work? One of the things that I think few people know is when she was at the two women's rights project. She out actually filed a really important Grief in the court in a case involving whether or not there should be the death penalty for rape. And she really used that case and that breathe Toa High light. Both the race tropes around sexual violence for black men. And also the way in which notions of purity that have been attached to white women that they actually are harmful to white women into everyone. And so you know, one of the things that I think may seem more quiet and subtle about her work is that she got really clearly the idea that we were all harmed by discrimination. We were all harm by Whatever form it took, whether is racism, sexism, disability discrimination that that is a through line throughout her work. In yesterday on this show. We've been

Portman Nordmann and urban all have a financial stake in the team. I think it's so important to have role models and heroes that are women for kids both boys and girls to see, and it's just such an incredible sport in that it really is a team Sport Portman, said in an interview with the Associated Press. You see one woman success, and all the others are cheering her on because one woman success is the whole team's success among the founding group are more than a dozen former players, including mia a ham, Abby Wambach and Julie Foudy.

It wasn't unusual to them at all.

AFC stadium before the World Cup. The women also reached out to a local supporters group that has been campaigning to bring a team to Los Angeles. The plan is to bring on additional investors as the team takes shape. We knew that there would be a strong and passionate supporters group here to support this and from there it was about. How do we do this in the right way? How do we do this differently Urman said? The group is partnering with the La Eighty Four Foundation.

Angel City also announced its formal support of the foundations play the fund aimed at helping kids in minority and underserved communities. We believe these players need to be playing on one of the best stages in the world, but we also know that we have the power and the platform and the voice to make a meaningful impact in our community.

"national women" Discussed on The Electorette Podcast
"What's really ironic here? Is that a significant share. Republican voters are women right but the party is moving in this direction. Were these women. Voters don't have representation in their chosen party. I mean I think that going back to the differences between democratic and Republican women. I think we are at this moment of sort of this. Existential threat facing Republican women candidates in the trump era as white women have have indeed swung more Democratic Post Twenty Sixteen Republican have really struggled to prevail in their primaries and they become increasingly accountable to a Republican base. That one is not that concerned with elevating women leaders and second has been found to be increasingly characterized by hostile sexism. And so I just think that there are some real questions about not just what it means for policy outcomes but also what it really means for our democracy if we are going to be in a country where only one party reflects. America you know really reflects all of the people that comprise the population that comprise the electorate. And I think that really bears some serious attention I. It is increasingly concerning that there is one political party that is becoming even more dominated by only white male leadership political leadership. You know I think we have to take a really good look at what. The implications are not just on policy but really for democracy at large right. And I'm trying to wrap my brain around what that might mean practically and what the implications might be and I can't because I don't think we've lived in the world where you know. The Republican Party has been completely white and all male or their work going pretty quickly. I mean practically what does that mean. Yeah well I mean. I think we are starting to see that writing in with the with the tremendous assaults on women's bodily autonomy that we've seen in the in the last years I mean all of this has really been taken up to such a tremendous level. You know that it really is pretty alarming so I think we have to think about kind of what what the implications are at. I know that there are some within the Republican Party in some Republican women in particular that are also concerned about this and sound the alarm bells but we have a long way to go in terms of reflective representation writ large but it is becoming increasingly stark that the two parties are in very very different places when it comes to reflective representation pride. I guess I'm having a hard time. Viewing this Outside of a partisan Lens I am a Democrat. And I'm thinking you know great. I chose the right party. I'm the party that has representation from all groups in the country and that's good. That's great for me. I chose Party. You know but I guess generally when you do have a primarily two party system. Both parties should reflect the electorate. But it's hard to fathom you know long term what that might actually look like if we do have one party. That's that's all men in a white and the other party that is representing the rest of America. And that's that's you know passing policy. That's important for the rest of America. Right. I WOULD IMAGINE. Ideally that would mean that. The party that has greater representation would be more successful than winning races. But I don't know if that's true it's it's a hard thing to kind of flush out that's right that's right and I'm really interested in this cycle this in the twenty twenty cycle because there have been some new efforts to really amp up recruitment of Republican women running for office like we're seeing continued interest. And I think the energy that we saw in twenty eighteen from the look from what I've seen from early filings. It looks like that energy will be sustained through twenty twenty in terms of democratic women running up and down ballot but there has been an effort to also be recruiting more Republican women who to run in twenty twenty and I'm very curious to see how they prevail like. That's going to be very telling and I. I think very instructive for kind of the future of the Republican Party as well. It's one of the things I was also daydreaming about. When I was reading the study was you know what we could accomplish if we did have gender parity state legislations. Because we're not there yet. We're making some gains but we're not quite there. Do you have any ideas of how we can help? Move that along. Yeah well I think the other thing that's really important to note is that I think a lot of the media coverage about this wave of women that ran in twenty eighteen. It was Kinda framed as though like every day women just suddenly woke up and I'm running for office and I think to a certain extent. There's some truth there. I mean I think there was a level of political interest in political mobilization. That happened post twenty. Sixteen that people got involved in politics at in all sorts of different new ways but we also saw in the wake of two thousand sixteen was the culmination of work. That's taken years to accomplish. And it wasn't just a spontaneous Kind of mobilization of new candidates many of these candidates have been recruited and trained by organizations working on the ground. I know you had Amanda Littman on recently run for something that might know has really been working to elect young people and especially in down ballot races. There are a number of organizations that have been recruiting and training women candidates. Lgbtq candidates black candidates lat next candidates candidates really identifying where are their strong leaders and helping give give them the skills and the training and support. They need to run for office. And so when we look at a state like Nevada and you think how did we get to this point where there's now fifty two percent whereas you know majority women legislature? Well the truth is that Nevada has had a really strong emerged chapter for many years. Twelve of the women now serving in the Nevada state legislature are emerge alums. And so not only do. Those types of programs provide the early skills building and training for. Like you know if you if you're interested in running for office. What do you need but they also provide this network for women rights as they make their decisions as they decide to run for local office for State Office. They are in communication and in in a community with all sorts of other women running and serving as well and I think some of the legislative success that we saw in the in the analysis is likely reflects the successive those types of programs as well. Because you're not then just coming into a state legislature and completely having to navigate on your own but you also have relationships with others that have kind of come up through the pipeline with you and I think that has been a real source of support and strength for a lot of newly elected women's State. Legislators plus a really important point. I hadn't thought about that. Actually that's a really excellent point about you know developing this network of women that you've come up with the same organization the same the same program and and you're right. I did have Amanda Litmanen. And she's great from run for something and I know a lot of the run for something alums have you know. They've won state races including the delegates in Virginia. And they've done really great things so I think that's a that's a really great. Starts Her woman listening to this. And you you want to run for office contact some of these groups and I'll probably publish lists in the show notes along with a link to the city for some of the groups like Emily's list or run for something in higher heights which is another one that helps elect Black women as obviously exactly a really really important programs in where we're starting to see real gains in representation not just of of women but of you know kind of all underrepresented populations it's undoubtedly a byproduct of the investment that these groups have have been making in identifying really talented individuals in helping them Helping provide the skills and the networks in the supports and indeed like all of them I. They're doing amazing work but none of them I think are kind of at this level in scale that they would ideally like to be so. There are huge opportunities to be investing in building that pipeline. And I think what we've Seen Post Twenty sixteen is that those types of investments can really reap tremendous. It's not all instantaneous. But over time they really just you know make make a huge difference in both political and policy outcomes right which is why. I think that this analysis is really important because it educates people on the fact that this isn't just about electing women just because we want. Lx women as women right. It's about the fact that women are very effective. Legislators and it's beneficial for everyone to support organizations who helped women get into office. I think that's really the key that the finding about events that productivity for legislatures as a whole increases that all legislators are more productive on that they're introducing in enacting more legislation in legislatures with greater numbers of women was to me the most important finding you know. I think all of us that are a fight for and worked to advance gender justice. Racial Justice we do this not because we only want to benefit women people of Color Cetera. But because we think it will benefit everyone and I think what we've seen from the productivity is data is that there are benefits. There are whole kind of system wide benefits to more reflective representation.

"I'm Jen Taylor skinner. And this is the electorate on this episode. Had Conversation with Julie Kohler. She's a fellow at the National Women's law center since she joined to discuss a new analysis that the recently published showing that women are more effective state. Legislators men now. I've seen similar studies in the past about how women in politics are generally more prolific. They passed more bills et CETERA. But I've never seen the data at the state legislative level and this is important because everyone in politics right now is focused on winning state legislatures and I've done at least a half dozen episodes on this topic this year alone because a lot of people have come to realize that winning state legislative races is the key to passing more bills like paid family leave or expanding voting rights and Mike passing the equal rights amendment and this new analysis from the National Women's law center is just another way to think about what can be accomplished with greater legislative power and what women specifically can accomplish with that power. So here's my conversation with Julie. Cooler Julie Kohler welcome to the cast. Thank you thanks so much for having me. So the National Women's law center you conducted an analysis that that uncovered that women were more effective and more prolific state. Legislators than men. And you know. I'm kind of familiar with this research because I think a few years ago. There was an analysis. Done that uncovered similar data right. But I don't think anything's been done recently. And specifically looking at women in State legislators. Is that true? Yeah that's exactly right. I've been really interested. Post Twenty Eighteen. At what is transpiring in the wake of these really record gains and political representation for women. And there's been a lot of focus on the changes in Congress and the role of newly elected women in the house both in taking back democratic control of the house but also and kind of. What's what the issues that they're advancing. But it's in the states where the gains political representation are actually even more dramatic and so I was curious in looking at the states because I think they provide a really important window into you know. The effects of more reflective representation on policy outcomes in examining. What are we seen in states? Now that we're seeing a real gains and tremendous variety across states and a huge range in terms of women's representation. You're absolutely right and just to go over some of the numbers I mean. We've made some significant inroads at the state level. So I think that in two thousand eighteen. There's been what a three-point gain and legislative seats for women. Yes over the last two years we've seen so now we're at twenty nine percent in terms of women's representation overall across all of the States in Congress about twenty three percent but then we're seeing real tremendous disparity across states and so for example in two thousand. Eighteen Nevada became the very first state to have a majority women's Day legislature the first in the country right so I think in two thousand eighteen. Three hundred seats gained by women. Is that right? Dozens laws all of the gains in two thousand eighteen were due to democratic women so it wasn't just women across the board. It was really women based on political party so while there were pickups at in the state legislature of over three hundred seats for Democratic Women. Republican women actually lost forty more than forty seats in two thousand eighteen. So all of the gains in representation have been as a result of democratic women's victories. While I WANNA talk about the difference in the party's there in a minute because that's that's really interesting but I don't want to forget about Virginia. I don't know if you've mentioned Virginia yet but that was really important because I think it was about a month ago. Maybe three weeks ago. That Virginia became the thirty eighth state to ratify the equal rights amendment the era and that was specifically because of these gains at the state level by women. There was I lean for corn rights. And you know you WanNa talk about Virginia absolutely absolutely so you know in a in over the last couple election cycles we've seen real transformations in the composition of the Virginia legislature both the House of delegates and the Senate not only have Democrats taken back control of both Both houses but we've really seen transformations women's leadership so a record forty women. Now serve in Virginia House of Delegates. As you mentioned they now have the first woman speaker With Eileen filler Corn Selection as speaker of the House of delegates and we have the first black woman in As serving as majority leader in the House of delegates there's just leadership and reflective representation across the board Danika. Rome became the first transgender woman to chair a committee in the Virginia House delegates. So we're really seeing just kind of historic firsts. All across the country in terms of women's representation. Do we have any idea of what's happening with Republican women and why it's kind of the reverse of what's happening with with democratic women right because they think that the analysis uncovered also that as far as like all the groups that you looked at Democratic men Democratic Women Republican Republican women to women are on top as far as being the most effective the most prolific and at the very bottom or on the other end of the spectrum are Republican women. Is that right? Yeah yeah so maybe I can. I talk about kind of what we found in terms of the patterns and I'd love to go into the the issue of of of corporate in greater detail to the National Women's law center partnered with Corum. Corum is a public affairs software platform to run some new analyses. And what we wanted to do was really look at how women state. Legislators were faring. These last two years and what we found Several things so first of all women state legislators introduced more bills and some more of their legislation enacted than their male counterparts. And as we said as you mentioned at the beginning of the interview that actually replicates other findings that have found that women legislators tend to be more productive or effective in passing legislation than men but we also found was that greater representation of women was associated with greater productivity overall so legislators all legislators serving in chambers that had greater levels of representation of women's representation introduced passed more bills in the last two legislative sessions than those serving in legislatures with fewer women. So in other words there was an overall effect. There was an overall benefit to having more diverse legislatures Also I think this was the question that you asked about party differences. We really did find that. This was that the productivity was not just a function of gender but was really the intersection of gender political party Democratic Women's State. Legislators introduced bills some more their bills enacted than democratic men than Republican men and Republican women alike and finally democratic women were also more likely to champion legislation that supports women in their families and to get the legislature passed so for example in Twenty Nineteen Democratic Women State legislators introduced successfully enacted bills on paid family. Leave on child care sexual harassment minimum wage than any other group of state legislators so the benefit that interplay with. Liberal Party is one that I think really does warrant more discussion and I think what was interesting. And certainly noteworthy was that when we looked at comparing the four groups of state legislators. Democratic Women introduced in enacted the highest number of bills and the group that introduced and enacted the lowest number of bills. Was Republican women so that was particularly striking difference that it wasn't just a function of gender but that it really seemed to be the interplay between gender and political party. I would imagine that it would be really hard to determine why that is. I mean. I'm just really curious myself that. What is it about the difference in culture between the two parties and the women in both parties? That would make that difference and we do. We know that we know for certain but we can. Certainly I think speculate one of the other things that I've been doing is over the past year. I've been interviewing a number of women state. Legislators about their experiences and I've talked to democratic women. They've all been democratic women. I've spoken to them Women serving in democratic majorities and Republican. Majorities you know in widely different states with wildly different political cultures so content of a good sense of some of the dynamics that they're experiencing. I will say that numbers of democratic women. Newly elected democratic women also have really noted that they're serving in chambers where the leadership really supported them and was open and receptive to the contributions of new. Legislators really kind of empowered them encourage them now. This is of course not a experience across the board but it was noteworthy that many e and really kind of you know coming into legislative cultures. That was that. Were excited about mentoring..

"You know i i was just preparing for this interview just thinking about women's health in general i was looking at some of the diseases and things that women need to be concerned about and they're very similar to the ones that men would heart disease and cancer and other things like that so i imagine with any disease what i always hear when i do these interviews is go see the doctor regularly and make sure that if there is something wrong it's it's detected early that is correct and another example of that is the one disease process that we worry about in pregnancy that unique to pregnancy is pre eclampsia pretty clancy's interesting disease because we know what the cure is but we don't know what causes it there's lots of theories of which one of them is genetic that it's almost like a half the baby we know his foreign and half the baby belongs to mom so per taps it's some sort of kind of rejection of the foreign dna and the baby again that's just a theory but the whole basis of prenatal care in the united states and in most developed countries is the screening and managed evaluation of pre eclampsia and you know as you anybody that's been pregnant knows you know about the nine visit pathway usually about nine visits for routine pregnancy but they're backloaded so most of those occur you know you're seeing them every month until about twenty eight weeks and then every two weeks till about thirty six weeks and every week and naturally to manage pre eclampsia and pre eclampsia has been shown to be a risk factor for heart disease in the future so it's also good that if a woman has had a pregnancy that's been affected with pre eclampsia that they let their primary care physician know that so they can be screened and seeing regularly to make sure that hypertension or heart disease or cholesterol any other issues actually develop later in life so it's kind of like a stress test for heart disease.
