Political Party with Keli Goff: What’s a Woman’s Issue?

Tuesday, April 26, 2016

7:00 PM

Join us for the next installment in our monthly conversation series hosted by writer and journalist Keli Goff.

Tonight we discuss the issues that really matter to women this election cycle, and which policies are deeply affecting them in ways that never even get talked about. When men are still setting the agenda in Washington, does it force women to vote based on protecting their fundamental civil rights rather than on their more nuanced individual concerns? Is it even accurate to talk about a women's voting bloc in 2016? 

We discuss this and more with Vanessa De Lucaeditor-in-chief at Essence MagazineEmily Shire, politics editor of Bustle.com, Penny Nance, president at Concerned Women for America, Liz O'Donnell, author of Mogul, Mom & Maid: The Balancing Act of the Modern Woman and founding editor of Cosmo Latina Michelle Mulligan.

About the Series

This election season, sidestep the horserace and join us for our only-in-New York cocktail party and conversation series for the politically curious. This is not another partisan shoutfest or predictable pundit roundtable. These are conversations that will be clever, passionate and political, yet civil. Thoughtful contrarianism is encouraged. Talking points are not.
