Over 30 million minority women don't vote, and no one seems to care. Historically, the vast majority of Latina, African American, Asian American/Pacific Islander women have not shown up to the polls.

In Engage Her, individuals share their personal histories and reasons for avoiding the political process, as well as their struggles and triumphs. Hear the voices of those busy raising families, working multiple jobs, and constrained by time, culture, family, history, language, and fear of political engagement. Luminaries such as Barbara Lee, Dolores Huerta, Aileen Hernandez, Maria Teresa Kumar and Margaret Ouye share their personal journeys of struggle to nurture both their activist lives as well as their day to day lives raising families.
