Summary:

This year, more women are registered to vote than men.  A discussion hosted by the Jesse M.

Unruh Institute of Politics; Rachel Michelin, Executive Director of California Women Lead; Maddy Lansky, President of USC College Republicans; and Catherine Shieh, Finance Director for the USC College Democrats. 

Description:

Do you know why the "Gender Gap" is so important? The truth is,  there are more women registered and who vote than men. Elections can be a numbers game and women will be the swing vote in deciding who the next President will be, who controls the United States Congess and which initiatives pass or fail in California.

On Tuesday, October 23rd, a panel discussion hosted by the Unruh Institute of Politics will explore the impacts of this voter distribution in the upcoming elections in the United States. Featured panelists will include Dan Schnur, Director of the Jesse M. Unruh Institute of Politics; Rachel Michelin, Executive Director of California Women Lead; Maddy Lansky, President of USC College Republicans; and Catherine Shieh, Finance Director for the USC College Democrats. 

Free tickets will be available to USC Trojans and California Women Lead memberrs, with light refreshments preceding the event.
