Pathways to Power:
An Atlantic Forum on Women in Politics

July 28, 2016

The 2016 presidential elections are making history with a female presumptive nominee on the Democratic side. Could this be the tipping point for women with political ambitions?

From the vantage point of the Democratic convention, we took a look at women who are leading the charge at the local, state and national levels.

At a time when gridlock and dysfunction define the nation's politics, we highlighted the people working to bring about positive change and ask what is being done to make a career in public office more appealing and attainable for young women.
