A historic background check for gun purchases initiative overwhelmingly passed in Washington state, marking a new trend for the nation.  We talk about it with experts — and also look at the growing number of economic security measures—like increasing access to sick days, affordable childcare, and raising the minimum wage—that passed by wide margins in both red and blue states across the nation.  We also get the inside scoop about what the new mix in Congress means for women’s issues.  And, last but not least, we hear about Baby Gate and learn how to navigate workplace maternity/pregnancy issues.
