ELECTORETTE PODCAST | EPISODE SIX

THE AMERICAN WOMEN'S PARTY

Mia Brett and Maya Contreras are the co-founders of the American Women's Party, an advocacy group fighting for equal representation, participation, and policy development for women in the Democratic Party. We discuss their role in creating "underground Hillary Clinton support groups" during the 2016 election as a safe space for women to discuss politics free from the threats of online attacks and misogyny. We also discuss how the American Women's Party is working to combat voter suppression, including the Voter Empowerment Day events being held around the country.
