The inauguration of joe biden is president and come harris vice-president. I have been like literally dancing around my house all day about this so i am going to turn it over now to rebecca who will introduce our guest rebecca. Mike kelly and yeah. I think we've all been dancing around one of my girlfriends to text earlier. She said. I can't tell you how excited i am. You know. it's a remarkable occasionally really important the cage. Very serious one Before introduced i guess. I just want to acknowledge the fact that at least some of us are able to watch the president elect and the vice president-elect this evening at this candle-lighting memorial to the covert victims and liege men in thinking about everybody as we go forward but in terms of thinking about everybody what we have always focused on forces on the matter of women and women's leadership and women's policy matters and we thought what better time than this evening as they take off tomorrow to take a look at the federal policy and legislative agenda that various organizations are proposing and at the biden harris administration is contemplating and lo and behold. We should have bought lottery tickets or something This afternoon the Biden harris administration announced a new admission. That they will form on on gender issues in gender policy with very high level leadership. Really serious people and our guest is going to get into a whole lot more. Visit wanna tell you that a name. That's probably familiar to many of you. Christie hefner who has been a strong an influential women's vocal advocate since the mid nineteen seventies at the national women's political caucus and is presently among other things a board member of the center for american progress action fund and in that capacity. She really has kept up to speed and contributed of course to the development of caps. Women's issues agenda so we are so glad that christie's here It's a tree always to be with girlfriends and We won't talk about how many years. But that's something. I'd say almost every time and At christie welcome. And if you would Just begin by sharing with us in our listeners. Like you know your sense of the context in which we're thinking about these issues. Well thank you very much. Rebecca kelly for inviting me on such an auspicious moment. So it's an honor to be having this conversation. On the eve of the inauguration i am reminded of the fact that as has been expressed in thinking about a variety of aspects of life from health and medicine to education. This pandemic has really magnified issues. That were there any way and in some cases. Which is why i am optimistic. Is i think. Expediting the movement forward to addressing those issues and in the case of any organization thinking about how to deal with this truly unprecedented global pandemic. the first instinct is just to to respond. You know to try and figure out what to do in the moment and that's usually followed by a sense of full. How do we recover. But the third phase i think is about. How do we build resilience for the future. And i think it's that ladder piece that is going to create the opportunity for an administration with as you noted rebecca in the formation of the commission the inclination and the people power to act on that to actually build the kinds of changes that will not only address the grievous problems at the pandemic has caused in terms of the loss of women in the workplace in terms of the impossibility of the lack of availability of childcare but the structural problems that were there before and that we could use this moment to actually address so visit or on the trucks for certain. There's something in these commissions that sometimes causes me doubt. But i think that as you've been looking at that kind of work as you've done it at cap how have you seen that sort of format take shape where it really does have an impact. What would you be whispering in the ear of kamala harris about it. If you were there doing that will candidly. One of the things that gives me a great hope. Is that Lead public policy economists on the project a decade ago that we did at cap which was called a woman's nation which was the first analysis of the status of women in america since eleanor roosevelt had chaired the commission on the status of women during the kennedy administration and it was very much prompted by the fact that women were now more than fifty percent of the workforce. And so what. What did we need to do to fully empower women's participation in the workforce to create economic growth for the country. What i was referencing as my one of my points of hopefulness is that the woman at calf who i worked very closely with on it was heather. Boucher and heather is the senior economic adviser to the biden harris administration. It's he comes to the administration with a deep understanding of these issues. A deep commitment to them an economist. Keen i for measuring impact. And not thinking of this as anything. That feels good. We should do but we need to put our resources behind the things. That will really improve. The quality of women's lives and families lives and our communities and therefore our nation and all of the background of the work that was done a decade ago whether it was around affordable childcare or around paid leave or a round of the need to address the problems of lack of certainty and scheduling or on minimum wage..

"Room in about four o'clock, I think it was the next day and I got a call from Fred Sanford said. I would like you to be on the ticket are life You'll be my right and I said on terribly honored, And of course, I said yes. And then after I hung up, I kind of was in a state of shock. I want my stay of people from my congressional staff was outside the office. I open the door and I said, Guess what we're making History is fascinating. That from 1996 and Debbie Walsh, you have one of those for our posters behind you because you hear her story. What stands out? Will I remember that whole period? And it wass this very interesting kind of transparent process in a funny way. I mean, we were watching on television in the evening news different, powerful high level political women going up to Minnesota to meet with Walter Mondale. And it was this kind of really public sort of interview process and there was tremendous pressure. I think on Walter Mondale from the women's political organisations, particularly the National Organization for Women in the National Women's Political Caucus of the time who are saying, this is your chance? You know this is allies on that women's vote that we had just really not seen before. May see if that gender gap can really work in your favor, and it was history making on that moment when she stepped up At the convention in San Francisco I There was that moment all of the delegates on the floor were women. The male delegates had given up their seats for the with women who were alternate so that all of the delegates on the floor that night were women. It was very exciting and thrilling moment and truly history, making What's changed since 1984 0 a lot has changed since 1984. You know, I used to be able to in 1984. I could tell you the names of all the women who are serving in Congress than I could do that pretty quickly. Ah, Now I can't there. There are a lot of them, but I was going to say to many, but there are not too many because women still make up only 23. 24% of the Members of Congress We have in the last couple of election cycles really since 2016. I think seeing an acceleration of women's political leadership first, of course, with the nomination of Hillary Clinton is the first woman nominated by a major party for president and then in 2018 in reaction in many ways to the election of 2016. We saw record numbers of women running for office but also running differently way saw. Far We've been seeing record numbers of women of color running for office. Younger women, women with Children, young Children at home and they've been running very authentically with their true everything about them sort of out there, making them far more accessible to voters are questioning 2018 was after the election, and we saw the 36 New women elected to Congress, the largest incoming house membership that we've ever seen way started to think. Well, this just be a one time deal. Or will this be the new normal and even now, in 2020 again seen record numbers of women running for the House record numbers of women nominated record numbers of women of color on DH Now? Of course, this historic moment of Kamala Harris, who will be officially than I Many of the Democratic Party for vice president this week. We'll go through some of those numbers in the House and Senate in just a moment, but some other numbers our phone lines. They're open. 2027 for 8000 are line for Republicans in 2027 for 8000. If you're a Democrat, and for Independence to 02748 8002 when you mentioned the House and the Senate, you've been putting together the statistics. So let's look at them right now, with 101 women holding seats in the House of Representatives, comprising about 23% Scent. Of the 435 members of the House representing 34 states. There are 88 Democrats and 13 Republicans. 583 file to run for the U. S House. That's up from 476. Back in 2018. As you mentioned a moment ago in the Senate, 57 women have served in the U. S. Senate 26 right now 17 or Democrats Naina Republicans for women of color and 60 have filed to run for the U. S Senate this year. That's up from 53 back in 2018. Those numbers tell you Well, it tells me that we're seeing great progress is in these election cycles, these most recent cycles, but that we're still not where we need to be, and we're also seeing a tremendous partisan. This very Republican women. Asai was saying there were 36 women newly elected women to the House. 35 of them were Democrats on Ly one new Republican woman elected in 2018. Backed Republican women lost their net loss of 10 in the House in the last cycle. This year. We're seeing record numbers of Republican women running, which we did not see in 2018. It was all driven really in 2018 by Democrats, but many of those Republican women who are running this timer running into very tough races and that partisan disparity Will prevent there from ever being really gender parity in Congress. Oren State legislators were slight state legislatures. We're seeing the same kind of numbers across the states. Much more work needs to be done on the Republican side to bring more Republican women into elective office. Let's get here from calls D is joining US. Charlotte, North Carolina Democrats line Good morning. Good morning. I'm just going to mention the league of women voters and throw the legal when voters, uh, played throughout the history of women's suffrage in this country. Rose rose Women voters in being the first to think of the presidential debate and the room of the women voters around the country in advocating for Ah government involvement. All citizens, and I wanted to mention that to you guys and have someone comment about throw over their league of women voters here. Thank you. Yeah, the legal woman voters has played a really important role in terms of the really grew up. Out of the suffrage movement on then taking and making sure that women then became full participants as voters. You know, we know that it's not that it was an overnight switch where women didn't have the right to vote, and suddenly they were voting the way they are now. Women out Vote men, now about about 10 million more women. Voted in the 2016 presidential election, then get men. So it has been a slow evolutionary process and the legal women voters has definitely been a part of that 27 for 8001 for Republicans in 2027 for 8004 Democrats Debbie Walsh is joining is she's from Rutgers University, and I want to get your reaction to what the president again was asked about yesterday. He's spending the weekend in bed, Mr New Jersey and NBC's Kelly O'Donnell with The issue of whether or not Senator Sanders, Senator Harris is qualified to serve as vice president. Let's watch.

And now that it's ever easy for Claire. But she always has managed to get through. But this is a tough race for her. All right. So do you think she's gonna pull through? I'm i'm.

I'm speaking with Donald length of the president of the national women's political caucus. My question to you is how much money did you send to her? Because isn't there a cap unless you're Trump's friend, then you can send as much as you want. No, no. You know, we we we send out donations. We have only to our endorse candidates. We were able to send her check breath thousand dollars this past week. Yeah. You're right. Mutation and candidates. We've been bought nearly one hundred candidate cycle. I gotta get to one more for Senate because this is where my head is at North Dakota, Heidi Heitkamp. She made a big mistake last week. A big mistake and. I don't know if I see it that way. I'm not talking about the cavenaugh. Go ahead. Sorry. Go ahead. I wasn't talking about cavenaugh fishy voted against cabin. What do you think? A big mistake went around tell you. What what she did you? Remember, she put there was an ad about women who were the victims of domestic violence, and they put some kind of newsletter or flyer or some kind of some kind of promotion and some of the women in there were not at all. Part, you know, assaulted or domestic violence, and it was a mistake by whoever did her marketing or PR, she immediately came out and said she was sorry. But all that was was a steak. But I think that that women. That's not gonna change that. She she's another one she's in she's in a buried a very conservative area. And although you know, she's. Conservatives f- advantages that then we usually see. You know? Caucus because focuses on. Feminist women. It makes it tough. She she's she's also when I'm just hopeful hoping that she's going to pull this through. All right. Right. We do need we need the win. The flower needs the rain, but let's see what happens. I hope. It's not going to be a trout how long okay. So we're talking about three women running for Senate. I. Does it look like the Democrats have a chance in hell to take the Senate? You know? Wave back. Go back seven eight weeks ago. You know, I really wish I was thinking that they would not. Not feeling is. But if people can people still donate like morning landed from her a paltry savings to these candidates. So what's happening? What let me you absolutely can. And especially this time people they're making decisions on bass minute at by that last piece of mail. You know, if you wanted to people can can go to our website and make a donation to our parody pack as many in I'm writing checks and sending it right out. So it's never too late. These candidates they counting on money coming in and w p c dot org is the website N WBZ dot org before I let you go. I do have to ask you, Donna, the how do you think that congress? Do you think the Democrats will take over the house? I do I did. I'm from New York. I know you mentioned Jerry New York, I live in New York. Washington DC, and I'm. A registered member the independence party. But I do believe that even though I've always worked for Democrats. Now, I'm an elected myself, but I work at a local level so very different than at the national level. You know here at the local level you need to work with everybody. And you're quite frankly, they should you know. You know, they need to work together at the federal level. So it just isn't happening hasn't been happening there for a while with with the situation that we're dealing with here. But I do think that they're gonna take back the house, and there are many races that show that you come is coming in first time candidates. Lots of women lots of women are running. And I think you're gonna see tremendous wins. November. Donna, thank you for joining us. Donna is the president of the national women's political caucus you want to donate help candidate N W P C's dot org. N WBZ dot org. Thank you for being with us on. All right. So. These women aren't doing good with the Senate races. It's scaring me. Okay. So I want to get motivated here. I wanna feel more optimistic. I I wasn't left. I would much with an optimistic feeling in terms of, you know, congress, you know, I mean the congressional people who are running. I think the Democrats are gonna win the Senate. It's not making me feel very positive. So I feel like if I could have song that was just a perfect me. Casey. Do you know the song? I liked it. Really Casey's is going to pull it out of a hat here. Casey. You know, I sort of got I just texted. I'm not joking. It's the song. I texted you do now. Oh, okay. We'll tell you ask her because I want to surprise best crystal there. Hi, crystal.

At some point that takes place on Friday look for increasing clouds a strong westerly marine push bringing in that cooler air from the ocean, and a chance, for some rain back Friday night and Saturday morning we'll be, welcoming that for sure in the KOMO weather center I'm meteorologist Shannon, O'Donnell, and we're rocking, the mercury at. Seatac where it's now, ninety one, degrees. At six oh six tonight is. A. Big test for Democrats who hoped to take control of the house and expand majorities in Olympia but what can the primaries tell us about the general, election komo's Jeff Pohjola spoke with democratic strategist, Kathy Allen how closely are you looking at turn out in this primary because that is the big game, we're hearing from Democrats nationwide with the mid-term general election in November It is. A matter of everyone's concerned turnout. Turnout turnout there are things. That obviously I'm also, the national vice president of the national women's political caucus and right now it's a. Record breaking year for women nationwide that are running for congress as well as running for governor and what we are seeing, a huge turnout in many of these states of women of color to be what we see our historic increases.

Base and we've talked so much about the open seat in the eighth congressional district but another one the Democrats are. Trying to knock off is the fifth over in Spokane Cathy? McMorris Rogers do the Democrats really have a chance of winning again in eastern Washington I gotta say that there's. An awful lot of energy going in there among other things because Cathy McMorris Rogers is damned if she does. And, damned if she doesn't it no matter what happens she's either to Trump or not. Enough Trump, and then the other half is that she w there's never been a person I have met in terms of all my years of working with women that is as energetic campaigner. As Lisa Brown I mean she really has just got notes from France from both wall Walla as well as in, Spokane asking me. To drive over there to, go to fundraisers they're having because they just love her and so she is going into a. Lot of, formerly thought of as safe vestiges for Republicans, and she's just messing things up because she is just going in there and.
