Recent Events

"Breaking the Glass Ceiling: An Analysis of Women in American Politics"
Wednesday, March 11, 2015
Terrace Room, Paige Hall
Pizza & drinks will be served

On Wednesday, Tufts Professors Deborah Schildkraut (Political Science), Virginia Drachman (U.S. History), and Ronna Johnson (English and Women's Studies) are coming together for a lively discussion on the status of Women in American politics as seen through various lenses: historical, feminist, and political.

Women have made huge advances in American politics over the last few decades, but just how remarkable are these advances? Women still only make up 20% of the Senate and 18% of the House. And there's still that glass ceiling women have yet to crack: the one to the White House.

Join us and help to put a few more cracks in the glass ceiling!

This bipartisan event is hosted by Tufts for Hillary and supported by the Department of Political Science and Pi Sigma Alpha.
