Women of Washington

June 9, 2016
Washington, D.C.

Our Women of Washington series continued with Senators Amy Klobuchar, Democrat of Minnesota, and Deb Fischer, Republican of Nebraska. The two Senators, of only twenty women currently in the Senate, sat down with The Atlantic's Molly Ball to discuss the impact women are having on official Washington. With much on the agenda, we talked about the way women are changing the world's most deliberative body and if more women in the Senate would make a difference. And what attributes do women bring to governing and leadership? As the first woman elected from Minnesota, and the second from Nebraska, what advice do the Senators have for future generations of women leaders?
