We are EMILY

We Are EMILY, an EMILY’s List podcast, was launched to drive interest in EMILY’s List and to highlight the importance of women in politics. We believe this podcast will give listeners a chance to hear from current and former candidates, so they can learn about the ins and outs of running a campaign, the challenges women face and the benefits to having more women in office. Each episode will also include an additional interview with members of our Creative Council.
