Women want higher profile in Metro, City Paper reports

Joey Garrison at The City Paper has written an excellent piece about women in Metro Government. The story points out that a growing number of women are seeking seats at the table by running for office.

Garrison also mentions the outstanding workshop held recently by Women in Numbers (WIN), where women candidates learned about some of the powerful tools we can use to increase our numbers in public office.

I have been fortunate to participate in WIN's activities, along with other organizations working to increase the voice of women in public service. I am currently president of the Tennessee Women's Political Caucus and served previously on the board of the Nashville Women's Political Caucus.

As women, we must seek out opportunities to serve. No matter our party affiliation, religion or race, whether we are mothers or daughters, professionals or homemakers, Tennessee women have so much to offer. We can make a difference.
