Electing to Lead
CSG Alumnae who ran for office in 2018 reflect on a remarkable Midterm Election
“The Year of the Woman.” That is what political pundits are calling 2018. It has been 26 years since such a declaration has been made. In 1992, a record-breaking four women were elected to the Senate and 24 to the House. Looking back, that was a trickle. This year, the country experienced a wave. After the 2018 Midterm Elections, the 116th Congress will have 102 women serving in the House, and 24 in the Senate. What drove so many so many women to run for these positions? Four CSG alumnae who ran and were elected as judges shared their perspective, and say the results of this election can be attributed to three factors: money, mentorship, and a strong dose of moxey.
