Hosted by Two Broads Talking Politics, the #VoteHerIn podcast is a joint production with Two Broads. Every other Wednesday, we explore and share the inspirational and frank guidance of women leaders working in diverse political contexts and with diverse personal stories and experiences. Notably−and throughout this past year of covering the movement to elect our first woman POTUS in 2020−the underlying theme of our discussions has been the challenge women face in achieving any kind of executive political power. Now that the 2020 Democratic contest for the presidential nomination is between two old white men, it is crystal clear just how important this campaign continues to be. So, we continue to explore why electing women to office, particularly executive office, really matters to the future of every American woman and girl, and how we can get this done.

The #VoteHerIn podcast segment is a no-holds-barred discussion, as well as an inspirational call to action.

Here are comments from former First Lady Michelle Obama about why the #VoteHerIn discussion is so important now and every day.
“In light of this last election, I’m concerned about us as women and how we think about ourselves and about each other. . . . What is going on in our heads where we let that happen, you know? . . .When the most qualified person running was a woman and look what we did instead, I mean that says something about where we are. . . . That’s what we have to explore . . . if we still have this crazy, crazy bar for each other that we don’t have for men . . . if we’re not comfortable with the notion that a woman could be our president compared to what . . . we have to have that conversation with ourselves as women.”
