In 1982, Harriet Woods was neck to neck with the male incumbent in a race for a U.S. Senate seat in Missouri when she ran out of money. Woods lost the race, and that's when her supporter, Ellen Malcolm, decided things needed to change. Malcolm and her friends formed Emily's List, the first political action committee focused on getting pro-choice Democratic women elected to office. In her new book, "When Women Win," Malcolm looks at the rise of women in politics over the past 30 years, her thoughts on the presidential race, and what work lies ahead.

Guests:

Ellen Malcolm, founder & chair of the board, EMILY's List; author "When Women Win: EMILY's List and the Rise of Women in American Politics"

Christine Toretti, founder, Women Lead PAC; Republican National Committeewoman from Pennsylvania; former chair and CEO, S.W. Jack Drilling Company
