Power Women in the White House

Women in the federal government have some of the toughest jobs in the country, only the toughest, most ambitious women make it to Congress and the White House.

Princeton University lecturer, Dr. Lauren Wright, joined KUSI’s Lisa Remillard Monday morning to explain why she thinks women in the White House on average, have outperformed the men.

Wright details why it’s crucial to have women working in all levels of the executive branch because we know they have diverse experiences and perspectives. We also know women tend to perform better in congress than men on average because of survivor bias (only the toughest, most ambitious, most tolerant women get there). I’m teaching women and politics at Princeton and can also talk about some of the things we discuss about why it is difficult for women to succeed in politics and why we need to give women in the Trump administration a lot of credit.
