When Women Win


On this episode of Democracy! The Podcast, we take an in-depth look at what happens when women win.  

First, tag along to Tunisia for the scoop on a group of rural women who had given up their right to vote for years.  Follow their story as they grow from apathetic to empowered citizens helping to steer the future of their country at the ballot box. 

In Peru, we’ll take a sobering look at terrifying violence intended to derail a woman’s shot at running for office.  

Then we’ll sit down with the  64th US Secretary of State and Chair of the Albright Stonebridge Group, the Honorable Dr. Madeleine Albright, as she speaks out on some of the most urgent issues facing women around the world today and shares some of her best behind the scene stories as the US’s first top woman diplomat.

Democracy! The Podcast is brought to you by the Consortium for Elections and Political Process Strengthening (CEPPS) with support from the United States Agency for International Development through the Global Elections and Political Transitions Award.
