Women's Underrepresentation in Politics Makes Women's Colleges Relevant

If you are considering a career in politics, I’m sure you will find Hannah Smith’s article (opinion piece) insightful. The Huffington Post published her article “Women’s Underrepresentation in Politics Makes Women’s Colleges Relevant,” on February 12, 2013. Ms. Smith is currently attending Bryn Mawr College, a women's liberal arts college, located in Bryn Mawr, PA (outside of Philadelphia, PA).

From the Huffington Post article:

“Women’s colleges do more than just four years of educating; they have been proven to foster leadership skills and self-esteem among their students and alumnae, which is important considering lack of confidence is one of the major reasons why women do not pursue public office.”
