The Bayou Brief’s First Podcast: Women in Politics

Last week, I sat down with Lynda Woolard, the President of the Independent Women’s Organization, Andrea Dew Steele, the President and Founder of emergeAmerica, and State Rep. and Councilwoman-elect Helena Moreno for a conversation about women in politics.

Steele was in New Orleans for the launch of emergeLouisiana.
