On March 9th, Amy Alexander, Farida Jalalzai and I were thrilled to present our book, Measuring Women’s Political Empowerment across the Globe, to a fantastic group of faculty and students at the Newcomb College Institute at Tulane University. This institute, directed by Sally J. Kenney (one of our contributors!) is doing really important work in developing future generations of women leaders, and we had a great time meeting all these brilliant and dynamic scholars. We are very grateful to Sally for the invitation, and also especially appreciated the logistical support of Anna Mahoney who is doing great work on the creation of women’s caucuses in U.S. State Legislatures.
