This March, WGRL was thrilled to have an audience with some of the women who literally run New York City – City Council Members Laurie A. Cumbo, Helen Rosenthal, Julissa Ferreras-Copeland and Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito! WGRL attended the New York City Council Women’s Caucus event, the Third Annual Women’s Herstory Month celebration, recognizing women in uniform.
The Council Members spoke with our young reporters about what inspires them, obstacles they encountered on their journey and why women’s voices are so important in politics.
Thanks to the Women’s Caucus for the leadership they exemplify – we hope you enjoy the podcast and are as inspired by these women as we are!
