Utah Women Lawmakers on AU Wednesday
Women make up approximately half of Utah's population, and yet there are no women in Congress who represent Utah. A bi-partisan group called Real Women Run is encouraging women to run for elective offices, and on Access Utah today, Tom Williams discusses the organization and training workshop, as well as having women in public office.
Guests on our show today include Speaker of the House Becky Lockhart and Sen. Karen Morgan. The workshop "Real Women Run" takes place on May 19th at the University of Utah. For more information on the "Real Women Run" organization and events, visit their website.
The second half of the program is a re-broadcast of an interview Lee Austin did with Sheryl WuDunn, author of Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide.
