Guest: Sharlee Mullins Glenn, Founder, Mormon Women for Ethical Government; Maren Mecham, Director of Communications, Mormon Women for Ethical Government Looking back over 2017, the year began with the Women’s March on Washington, DC, the day after President Trump’s inauguration. It ended with #MeToo: scores of women speaking out about sexist treatment, harassment and abuse they’ve experienced. In between, there’s been an explosion of women around the country running for office or getting involved in other ways, politically. The president of Emily’s List, the largest national organization devoted to electing female candidates, told the New York Times recently that her group has “never seen anything like (the level of interest and engagement they’ve seen) in the last 12 months.” Mormon Women for Ethical Government is one manifestation of that. It’s a nonpartisan grassroots group, started initially on Facebook that has grown now to more than 5,000 members.
