The nation’s capital attracts young women with civic ambitions.
By the time I interviewed political rockstars and tenderfoots including Jessica Grounds, Margie Omero, and Tomi Ogundimu and Kate Christensen for this story, I was nearly convinced to move to DC — and switch over to the ‘dark side’ to start analyzing and proselytizing instead of reporting on those who do. Really, these women are all kicking ass in their own right. With any luck, they’ll continue to inspire some other young women to get involved in politics.
