Women in Politics

Kerry Healey was elected to the office of lieutenant governor of Massachusetts in 2002. Prior to holding that position, she chaired the Massachusetts Republican Party. She discusses why more men than women run for office, her own story of how she entered politics, and what it currently means to be a Republican in Massachusetts.

The audience is welcomed by Doug Bush '06, director of political affairs for the College Republicans of Boston College. Healey is introduced by Greer Tan Swiston, a former Republican candidate for the state legislature, now campaigning for the position of alderman in Newton, Massachusetts.
