The Game – 246 – Mary Hughes

The political landscape has been shaken with one revelation after another of misconduct by male elected officials toward women. Is this a watershed moment for women in higher office? We ask one of the nation’s leading advocates for the election of women to political office. The Game is Politics. The Game is on.

Welcome to The Game. I’m Mark Simon. We welcome back Mary Hughes, co-founder of the consulting firm Hughes & Co., and founder of Close the Gap California, a campaign to achieve gender equity in the state Legislature by 2028 through the election of progressive women. We’ve had Mary on before to talk about this effort but now, it seems to be an issue with a new urgency.
