WHO: New York Times bestselling author Marianne Williamson partners with The Women’s Campaign School at Yale University to produce a non-partisan symposium dedicated to empowering women to run for political office, with an emphasis on the intersection of politics and spirituality.
Sister Giant puts out a special call to women to consider candidacy for political office. It is a non-partisan, unabashedly spiritual and progressive symposium. Its goal is to promote gender equality in political leadership, at a time when the US Congress is comprised of only 16.8 percent women, and State legislatures are comprised of 23.6 percent women.
