Watch These First-Time Female Candidates Find Out If They Won On Election Night | She’s Running 4

A record number of women ran for office this year, many of them for the first time; among their ranks were Deidre DeJear, Pearl Kim, Anna Eskamani, and Morgan Zegers. These four very different women, who we followed on the campaign trail for six months, got into politics for very different reasons, but shared one thing in common: They’d never thought they’d be candidates.

Each sought to make history on Tuesday. Democrat DeJear wanted to be Iowa’s secretary of state and the first African-American elected to statewide office in Iowa. Republican Kim, a former special victims prosecutor and sexual assault survivor, ran for Pennsylvania’s 5th Congressional District and to become the first Korean-American woman in Congress. Democrat Eskamani, a former Planned Parenthood employee, hoped to become the first Iranian-American in the Florida state House. And 21-year-old Republican Zegers tried to convince voters to elect to her to the New York State Assembly as its youngest member.

All these women’s canvassing, their fundraising, their sign waving, their speech making, their cow milking, their porkchop flipping, their weeks and months and years of campaigning — all of it came down to just one day.

“It was a pretty incredible experience to be able to vote for myself,” Kim told VICE News. “After all this, to vote myself in for Congress — it’s crazy.”

Watch the final installment of VICE News’ “She’s Running” web series to find out what happened next.

Cecile Richards Thinks Planned Parenthood Is Basically Winning The Abortion Fight (HBO)

Cecile Richards spent 12 years as president and CEO of Planned Parenthood. When she stepped down at the beginning of May, she left the organization in the middle of a political and personal fight that has been raging for decades around reproductive and abortion rights.

Another shot in that battle was fired last week when the White House confirmed their support for a proposal that would bar certain federal funds, known as Title X funding, from going to any health organization that performs abortions.

So it would seem like now is an odd time for Richards to step down, but she told VICE News that she feels like Planned Parenthood has “invested in a whole generation of leaders. And it’s important to step aside and make room for them.”

She was hired specifically to ramp up Planned Parenthood’s side of the long-running political fight over abortion and that she has been successful. Richards consistently cites the organization’s growth of 3 million to almost 12 million supporters in her 12 years working there.

She told VICE News that the message of reproductive rights that Planned Parenthood sells, in the long run, will beat out the conservative anti-abortion one.

“I think the Republican leadership in this country is on a iceberg that is getting smaller and is floating out to sea. Now they may have some victories but in the long haul they’re going to lose because those are not victories that are supported by the American people,” Richards told VICE News..

But, her image of what the future might hold doesn’t totally sound like her side is winning. When asked to project where the politics on the issue of abortion is going she said, “I think that Roe is at stake and the Supreme Court and a lot else.” She continued, “I guess if I were to project ahead…there are going to be states where it’s affordable, available, legal. Women can get [abortions] without stigma, without shame. And there are going to be states where it’s really hard. And that would be my fear.”
