The X Factor: Women in New England Politics

The X Factor looks at some of the trailblazing women in New England politics.

The year 2020 marked the centenary of the 19th Amendment protecting a woman's right to vote. Women still represent only about one-third of elected state officials in the U.S. but New England averages almost 39 percent women in its six state legislatures. The X Factor looks at some of these trailblazing women and their impact on the political landscape.

The X Factor: Women in New England Politics is a local public television program presented by Rhode Island PBS.
