One hundred years ago this week the 19th Amendment was ratified, extending the right to vote to some, but not all, women in America. To discuss how women voters have shaped our democracy, Valley Edition Host Kathleen Schock spoke to Francine Farber, board member and past president of the League of Women Voters of Fresno, Amanda Renteria, CEO of Code for America and former national political director for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, Ivy Cargile, assistant professor of political science, CSU Bakersfield and Dezie Woods-Jones, state president of Black Women Organized for Political Action.
