92Y Video: Rebecca Traister talks with Nora Ephron about Politics, Life and the Future of Women

Nora Ephron joined Rebecca Traister at 92nd Street Y on June 9 for discussion moderated by Allison Stewart about politics, life and the future of women.

In the highlights seen above, the women discussed Hillary Clinton, Sarah Palin, and what has changed since for women in American politics.

Starting the discussion around the well-known phrase, “well-behaved women rarely make history,” Traister said she’s “developed a kind of rugged admiration for Sarah Palin, despite the fact that I disagree with every word that comes out of her mouth.”

Stewart followed up with a poignant question: “Why haven’t more women gotten involved in political office?” Watch the highlights above to hear discussion on that topic and more, including Stewart reading from Nora Ephron’s latest book, I Remember Nothing.

Coming up on June 23 at 92Y: Eva Gabrielsson in Conversation with Gloria Steinem. Tickets are available here.
