In recent years, there’s been growing attention to the gender gap, a statistic that shows how men and women vote differently. Studies have shown that women candidates fare better when more women turn out at the polls. Emily’s List raises money to support pro-choice Democratic women candidates running for Congress.

Guests:
LARRY BENSKY, Pacifica National Affairs Correspondent.
MARY BETH CAHILL, Executive Director of Emily’s List.
DALE MCCORMICK, State Senator from Maine who is challenging Republican freshman Representative Jim Longley in Maine’s first Congressional District. She is on Emily’s List.
