How Vt.'s record with women in politics is looking

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

Vermont women have been well-known as pioneers in politics. In 1954, the state elected the country's first female lieutenant governor, Consuelo Northrop Bailey. In 1984, Vermont elected one of the country's first female governors, Democrat Madeleine Kunin. Kunin was the first female governor in Vermont. She served three terms in the 1980s.

Since her time in office, however, Vermont has had a weak record of electing women to its top political offices.

Former Governor Madeleine Kunin has taught college courses and written books about women in office. She appeared on The :30 to talk more about women in Vermont politics.
