“What’s Gender Got To Do With It?” Presentation
In honor of Women’s History Month this March, the League of Women Voters of Morristown Area is sponsoring an engaging evening featuring three NJ political experts.
Their primary topic will be gender voting patterns and what they mean for America’s future. They will also be sharing their understanding of voter behaviors as well as highlighting trends in the media.
Perspectives will be offered on what to anticipate in future voter behavior. With the recent political climate, we will be asking “has America changed, is there a New America”?
