Guest Host: Steve Roberts

Of the one hundred Americans serving in the U.S. Senate, only nine are women. Although they come from different parties, different regions, and different backgrounds, they meet regularly for dinner to talk about both politics and their personal lives. They teamed up to co-write a book about their experiences in the Senate, and several of them join guest host Steve Roberts in this hour to tell their stories and to talk about their hopes that more women will serve in to Congress.

Guests

  • Sen. Barbara Mikulski D-Maryland
  • Sen. Patty Murray D-Washington
  • Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison R-Texas
