Ep. 1: I Got It From My Mama

Ep. 5: Jumping the Confidence Gap

Women tend to run for office less. Part of that is due to the fact that there's a confidence gap when it comes to women believing they are qualified to run.

Ep. 6: Females Are Strong as Hell

Historically, stereotypes about women focused on the frailties of the "weaker sex." But many women running for office this year prove those ideas false.

This week, Host Jenny Kaplan chats with Chrissy Houlahan, a Democrat running in PA-06.
