In the first of what is sure to be many episodes about the role of women in elections, Episode 2: The Elections Process looks at elections near (the recent elections in Northern Ireland) and far (the DNC chair and the role of the DAUK Women’s Caucus) and how women’s issue fit into both of these.

Episode 1: Feminists in a Strange Land
