Girl Power with Robin Swanson

CAPITOL WEEKLY PODCAST: We are joined today by Robin Swanson, a political strategist and communications expert with more than 25 years of experience in both DC and Sacramento. She is also the co-founder and president of #WinLikeaGirl, a bipartisan group that spotlights the often unrecognized achievements of women who work in politics.

Swanson shares the #WinLikeaGirl origin story, talks about the reluctance of some women to showcase their own achievements and how the group is helping to bring women to the center stage.
