Ep. 7: The Name's Spanberger, Abigail Spanberger
Historically, stereotypes about women focused on the frailties of the "weaker sex." But many women running for office this year prove those ideas false. Candidates have held positions in the military, intelligence agencies, and State Department. This is the second of three episodes in which we're speaking with such women. Host Jenny Kaplan chats with Abigail Spanberger, a Democrat running in VA-07. Abigail talks about her experiences as former CIA operations officer and how her background in intelligence drove her to run. Experts share their perspectives on how different careers add to and influence policy perspectives and political races.
