Women in Politics The 2012 election was a turning point for women in politics. There will be a record number of women in the U.S. House of Representatives where Ohio's Marcy Kaptur is the most senior woman member. There will be more women U.S. Senators than ever before, and New Hampshire becomes the first state to have an all woman Congressional delegation. Are women still under-represented? Join host Mike McIntyre for a conversation about the ascendance of women in politics, Tuesday morning at 9 on the Sound of Ideas.
