"Women of Influence in Politics: A Panel Discussion"

In conjunction with the C-SPAN bus visit, C-SPAN’s local cable partner, Time Warner Cable, joins Russell Sage College in hosting, “Women of Influence in Politics: A Panel Discussion.” Three recently-elected state legislators, Hon. Kathy Marchione, Hon. Cecilia Tkaczyk, and Hon. Patricia Fahy, will discuss their own journey into public service and the issues facing women in office. The event will be moderated by political journalist Liz Benjamin, host of YNN’s Capital Tonight. Sage President Susan Scrimshaw will start off the event, also sponsored by the Department of History and Society at Sage.

Friday’s panel discussion is the first in a series of “Women of Influence in Politics” events, which will bring female leaders from different levels and branches of public service, to the Sage campuses.
