Batten CEL & WIP Presents: Women in Legislature

On Friday, May 1 at noon, the Center for Effective Lawmaking along with Batten Women in Policy will be hosting a discussion about the role and importance of women in legislatures. The CEL has ground-breaking research finding that congresswomen tend to build coalitions more regularly than their male counterparts. This results in minority-party women being some of the highest scoring legislators when it comes to effectiveness. But, this principle does not apply equally to all congresswoman, nor for their proposals in some important policy areas. Join us as Professor Craig Volden presents what studies have shown and answers any questions about the implications of his findings. We are looking forward to a fascinating discussion about effective congresswomen and the complexities of congressional negotiations.
