Exchange Exemplar: the women who led the way to women in office
We've come a long way since the time it was simply unthinkable for a woman to hold political office... or for that matter, for any woman to vote for an officeholder.
Now there are more women in Congress than ever before (but still at a lower percentage than in the general population).
A Virginia State Senator, Janet Howell, joined up with her daughter-in-law, Theresa Howell, to celebrate the women who paved the way, in a book for younger readers.
Leading the Way: Women In Power includes names you know, and plenty you don't.
Theresa Howell, author of several YA books, is the guest.
