Women’s Law Association conference focused on increasing women’s political participation (video)

In an effort to build momentum following the 2012 races, the Women’s Law Association hosted its annual conference on February 8, entitled “19%: When Will Women Have the Floor?” Experts and professionals gathered to discuss how to close the gender gap in politics, and what role lawyers can play in that process.
In the first panel, “Models from Abroad; International Pathways to Women’s Participation,” panelists extolled the virtues of electoral gender quotas, or requirements that women make up a certain proportion of the government.:
Panel 2, Tips from the Trail: Gender in Political Campaigns
Panel 3, Voter Disenfranchisement: Whose Voices are Represented
