Hope for Better, Work for Change

Recorded in November 2020

Studies consistently show that women in elected office are more likely to work across party lines, bring more money back to their home districts, and actively build healthier societies.

At She Should Run, we hope for and anticipate a future where women make up half of all elected officials. However, getting there requires us to invest in ground-level training and myth-busting, speaking to the rising generation about political opportunities, and inviting all people, regardless of party or gender, to support the movement to get more women in office.

We were joined by the Women’s Political Collaborative of Tennessee as we spoke with Nashville Councilwoman Zulfat Suara and Knoxville Councilwoman Janet Testerman about how they embrace hope and what they are hopeful for looking ahead. This event was moderated by Stephanie J. Williams, President of the Board for the Women’s Political Collaborative of Tennessee.
