About This Show
Whatever else can be said for the 2016 election, the highest glass ceiling was not broken and the number of women in the U.S. Congress stalled at a mere one-fifth of its members. Every month POLITICO Editor Carrie Budoff Brown will sit down with women leaders to talk power, politics and policy, and explore how dynamics shift when women have a seat at the table. Women Rule is produced by POLITICO in partnership with Google and the Tory Burch Foundation.
