Women in Politics: Why It Matters

Women in Politics-Why It MattersEpisode 7-Women in Politics: Why It Matters

The Working Woman Radio sits down with Ms. Jannquell Peters, former Mayor of the City of East Point, to discuss the importance of women in politics.

Ms. Peters was elected 33rd Mayor of the City of East Point on December 3, 2013.  Mayor Peters is an attorney, entrepreneur and small business owner. Before taking public office, Jannquell held a variety of positions working with the underrepresented, providing a voice to those without. She has served as a mediator, public defender and a child advocate attorney—the position where she currently serves and represents abused and neglected children and families in foster care.  

 

On this episode, we will discuss the gender biases and double standards that women face as elected officials and political leaders. We will also talk about the day in the life of a political candidate. Finally, we’ll explore ways on how women can balance work and family in a male-dominated field.
