Pelosi said that early in her congressional career, when she attended dinners with some male and female colleagues from Congress, the men would rarely ever ask the women their advice about policy.

Said Pelosi: “It was on par with when, on the floor of the House, one of them said, when we were having a debate over family planning, somebody who didn’t share my view stood up and said, ‘Nancy Pelosi thinks she knows more about having babies than the pope.’ Yes. So, not that our expertise is confined to child birth and all that, but the fact is nobody’s asking you for anything, power, decision making, all the rest. You have to go out there and assert it.”

Pelosi made her remarks in a discussion about women’s role in the family, society, and in politics. The discussion was moderated by Bloomberg View columnist Margaret Carlson and took place in Washington, D.C. on July 18.
