Insights: Ali Vitali on Why We're Still Waiting for a Woman to Reach the White House

August 30, 2022

In this edition of HPS Insights, HPS senior director Rebecca Buck interviews NBC News Capitol Hill Correspondent and former MSNBC “Road Warrior” Ali Vitali about her new book, “Electable: Why America Hasn’t Put a Woman in the White House . . . Yet.” 

Drawing on her experiences covering the 2020 presidential campaign, Ali discusses the unique hurdles women face in running for the highest office in the land. Ali and Rebecca reflect on how more women running for the presidency has changed the national conversation on historically overlooked issues like child care and paid parental leave. 

What will it take to finally elect a woman to the presidency? And why hasn’t it happened already? Listen to the show to find out.
