||The 2008 Presidential Primaries have been a forum for many of the critical issues facing the country. However, race and gender, while examined through the lens of the careers of Senators Hillary Clinton and Barak Obama, have rarely transcended the candidates. Now that race, class and gender have been pushed to the surface, how should they be interpreted? How relevant are the issues to the larger campaign? Irrespective of who wins the White House, how relevant are these issues to be to the next administration? This forum will use this moment to address the often divergent interests of women, especially white women, and people of color.
