Women+Girls=Hope Women Can Lead. Will We Let Them?

What are politicians and organizations doing to increase the number of female representatives in Congress? What do we know about the impact of female political leaders? What about women's leadership in corporate America? Do more women at the top make companies more profitable? And will the glass ceiling ever be completely shattered? Joan Dempsey, Melody Barnes, Judith Rodin, Anne Veneman, Jane Harman, Laura Liswood and Patricia Sellers discuss these important questions.
