Over the next 10 weeks, Hellbent Media and EMILY’s List are going to bring you real conversations with these women. We are going to bring you their stories, told in their own words: their issues, their solutions, and their plans to change their communities and the country as a whole. It’s our pleasure to introduce you to the future elected leaders of this country. The future — the very near future — is female.

This week, Devon Handy sits down with EMILY’s List VP of communications, Christiana Reynolds, and EMILY’s List president, Stephanie Schirock, to talk about why we see so many women running for office – and why this isn’t just a moment, but a movement; a fundamental change in who is going to lead our country from here on out.
