Jennifer Lawless talked about her latest book, Becoming a Candidate: Political Ambition and the Decision to Run for Office, and she responded to telephone calls and electronic communications. In the work she studied the dynamics underlying who runs for public office and why, the reasons why fewer women than men run for office, and the consequences of the disproportionate ratio between women and men candidates and officeholders.

C-SPAN Radio’s Nancy Calo read news headlines at the end of the program. close
