Historically, stereotypes about women focused on the frailties of the “weaker sex.” But many women running for office this year prove those notions false. Candidates have held positions in the military, intelligence agencies, and the State Department. This is the third of three episodes in which we’re speaking with women whose career experiences exemplify strength. Host Jenny Kaplan chats with Lauren Baer, a Democrat running in FL-18. Lauren was a senior advisor to both of President Barack Obama’s secretaries of state and to the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. Lauren talks about how her background in diplomacy and international relations impacted her decision to run. Experts share their perspectives on how different careers add to and influence policy perspectives and political races.
