The New York Times stirred debate with a piece about perceptions of sexism on the campaign trail. Six women are running for president in 2020, and record numbers of women are running for office on just about every level.
The Times piece is called “A Woman, Just Not That Woman.” It details how voters claim to view men and women equally as political contenders, yet women face steeper challenges. Our guests weigh in:
- Nicole Hushla Re, vice chair of the Monroe County Democratic Party
- Robin Wilt, member of the Brighton Town Board
- Stephanie Townsend, member of the Pittsford Town Board
