We are kicking off our celebration of the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment with an interview of California State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson. Representing the 19th Senate District which includes all of Santa Barbara County and western Ventura County, Senator Jackson is the Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee and author of landmark legislation aimed at strengthening California's equal pay law, requiring more women on corporate boards, and most recently, expanding paid family leave. Hear the Senator’s no-holds-barred view on the power women bring to elections, what women bring to the table as leaders in business, politics, and the court, the importance of mentorship, and the role of Title IX in competitive sports for women. Senator Jackson, described as passionate, tenacious, and “not winning any congeniality awards in Sacramento,” talks about speaking without fear, amplifying women’s voices, and how women can support one another in positions of influence.
