Women Voters – Who are they and what do they care about in this election?

From calling them Soccer Moms to Walmart women, political candidates vying for women voters often try to put the gender in a box. Today on Focus: Western New England, we’ll take a closer look at women voters and hear what they really want from their elected officials, from the economy, to jobs, to health care  and beyond. Listeners, call in and tell us: what do women care about in this election and how different is it from any other electoral group?

In the studio with New England Public Radio’s Susan Kaplan:

Mt. Holyoke Professor of Politics Liz Markovits, Former Connecticut Governor Jodi Rell, Researcher Jocelyn Kiley from the Pew Research Center, and Eva Valentine, President, Massachusetts League of Women Voters.
