Last week was Women’s Suffrage Week, and tomorrow voters will decide whether to elect the country’s first female president. In light of this, students organized a few events to note the important role of women in politics.

On Wednesday evening, the Women’s Resource Center and Bowdoin Women’s Association invited Professor of Government Janet Martin to Burnett House to speak about the role of women in politics, particularly as they relate to this year’s presidential election.

Joy Huang ’19, who helped organize the talk, said she wanted the week’s events to move beyond the spectacle surrounding the candidates and into the deeper issues of women in the political arena. Read the story.
