Harlem’s Mark-Viverito And Others On “Women And The Future of New York Politics” Panel

August 24, 2017

Despite New York’s reputation as a progressive city, on the local political level at least, the future looks far from female. By the end of 2017, the New York City Council’s 51-member body could have fewer than 10 female representatives, a sharp drop from 18 women in 2009. So what will it take to reverse this trend and achieve gender parity in politics? A distinguished panel of veteran and current New York politicians will discuss their visions and strategies for getting — and keeping — women in public office, both locally, regionally, and nationally.

Reception and exhibition viewing to follow.
