Transcript & Podcast of Eleanor Smeal on New York’s U.S. Senate seat
The pundits continue to chew on the question of who will take Hillary Clinton’s Senate seat if, and when, she is confirmed as Secretary of State. Caroline Kennedy is getting the bulk of the media’s attention, but there is another Carolyn that is getting support from The Feminist Majority and NOW — New York Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney.
I was honored to have the chance to interview Eleanor Smeal, the president of the Feminist Majority, an organization dedicated to women’s equality, reproductive health, and non-violence, and former two-time president of the National Organization for Women, on their endorsement of Maloney for Hillary’s Senate seat, as well as her thoughts on what the Obama administration might have in store for issues that are particularly important to women, like fair pay, in the next four years.
