Women in politics is panel’s topic

A panel featuring five female California politicians will talk about “The history, the real dirt, the practicalities and the successes” of being in public office.

Hosted by Run Women Run, a new California political action committee, and VOX: Voices for Planned Parenthood’s UCSD chapter, the event will be held from 1:30 to 4 p.m. March 22 in the Hojel Auditorium, Institute of the Americas at UCSD.

Panelists are:

- Midge Constanza, first woman appointed assistant to the president (by Jimmy Carter);
- Crystal Crawford, mayor, Del Mar (third term);
- Mary Salas, California Assembly member, 79th District; and
- Lynn Schenk, first woman elected to the U.S. House of Representatives from San Diego.

Barbara Bry, founder of Run Women Run, will be the moderator.

They’ll address such topics as obstacles they faced and how they overcame them; matters of time, money and qualifications; and the satisfaction, fun and challenges. They’ll also offer advice for the next generation of female leaders.

Cost is $25 for Run Women Run members, $35 for nonmembers. Parking is free.
