Women Lobbyists May Be Worth More
Although men outnumber women in Washington's lobbying corps, an analysis by LegiStorm says that individual contacts held by women are worth more on average than those held by men. The study is one of the first of its kind and offers a new perspective on the $3 million lobbying industry and how it's evolving.
"That's why women do very well here," says Senior Policy Advisor Kerry Feehery. "They work hard, and Washington has rewarded the hard work, regardless of whether you're male or female."
