The Center for American Women and Politics presents

A Seat at the Table book talk

with authors Kelly Dittmar, Kira Sanbonmatsu,
and Susan J. Carroll
 

Join the authors for a discussion of their new book

  • Kelly Dittmar, Assistant Professor, Political Science, Rutgers-Camden; CAWP Scholar
  • Kira Sanbonmatsu, Professor, Political Science, Rutgers - New Brunswick; CAWP Senior Scholar
  • Susan J. Carroll, Professor, Political Science and Women's and Gender Studies,

This book examines how women in Congress—in their own words—assess their experiences in and contributions to American politics. Relying on personal interviews with over three-quarters of the women serving in the 114th Congress, the authors analyze the perspectives of women members as they seek to make a meaningful difference in a contemporary political environment characterized by gridlock and party polarization.
