Why is it that women are at least half of California's population, but only make up 30 percent of elected officials at all levels of government around the state?  In the Inland Empire, the percentages of women in elected office are even lower: 24 percent in San Bernardino County, and 23 percent in Riverside County.  Efforts to increase the number of women in politics are not without their challenges, as we hear in Part 1 of Capitol Public Radio Network's series, "Up Against the Ceiling." 

NOTE:  We'll post Parts 2 and 3 in the series on this web page on Thursday and Friday respectively.
