Every day, our journalism dismantles barriers and shines a light on the critical overlooked and under-reported issues important to all North Carolinians.

This week Mary Williams Stover, executive director of the North Carolina Council for Women & Youth Involvement, talks with host Stephanie Carson about the Status of Women and Their Political Participation in North Carolina Report released in August.
We also talk with Sarah Preston, executive director of Lillian’s List, about what her organization is doing to mobilize and get more women in office in the state.
It’s an important topic as we quickly approach election day, and one underscored by the recent death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Justice Ginsburg leaves behind big shoes to fill – not just for her role on the U.S. Supreme Court but also as a champion for equal representation of women in the workforce and the political process.
