Following November's midterm elections, women will occupy fewer seats at the legislative table in January than at any time since 1998. As it is, the numbers of women legislators in Massachusetts have hovered around 25% for years, and the legislature has seen no sweeping gains in over a decade. Today, we ask whether this is indicative of a larger trend in local or national politics, and what it will take to start to bring more female lawmakers to Beacon Hill. We'll talk with the most senior woman in the Massachusetts House of Representatives, Rep. Patricia Haddad (D-Somerset), who led a bus tour this fall to lend support female candidates in Massachusetts. We're also joined by Carol Hardy-Fanta, Director of the Center and graduate program for Women in Politics and Public Policy at UMass Boston.
