The IOP welcomed a panel of experts to discuss the increase of women running for office. The panel included Kelly Ayotte, former U.S. Senator (R-NH) and current Visiting Pritzker Fellow at the IOP; Jennifer Lawless, Director of the Women & Politics Institute at American University’s School of Public Affairs; and Lauren Underwood, candidate for U.S. Congress in the IL-14 district. This conversation was moderated by Amy Walter, National Editor of The Cook Political Report and member of the IOP’s Board of Advisors.
As a tax exempt 501(c)(3) organization, the University of Chicago does not support or oppose any candidate for political office.
