The Firsts: The Inside Story of the Women Reshaping Congress
Discussion with the author, Jennifer Steinhauer
In partnership with The Weinstein JCC of Richmond
In the November 2018 midterms, the greatest number of women in history were elected to Congress. It was a group diverse in background, age, professional experience, and ideology. New York Times reporter Jennifer Steinhauer chronicles these women’s first year in Congress, following their shift from trailblazing campaigns to the daily work of governance. In committee rooms, offices, visits back home with their constituents, and conversations in the halls of the Capitol, she probes the question:
Will Washington, with its hidebound traditions and overpriced housing and petty power struggles, change the changemakers?
Or will this Congress, which looks a little more like today’s America, truly be the start of something new?
