As American democracy confronts threats on multiple fronts, how are women leaders charting the path forward? Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has been at the forefront of struggles on issues of voting rights, election reform, health care, climate, and immigration, navigating landmark legislative proposals through the House of Representatives. As the first woman Speaker of the House and House Democrats' leader for two decades, Speaker Pelosi brings an unparalleled perspective to contemporary American politics and policy.
Senator Boxer served with Speaker Pelosi in the House before making history in 1992 when she and Senator Feinstein became the first two women to be elected to the Senate representing a single state.
The Boxer Lecture is an annual event, sponsored jointly by the Institute of Governmental Studies and the Bancroft Library, that focuses on women in leadership.
