As our coverage of the Republican National Convention continues, we take a closer look at the impression left by Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin and the greater significance of her rise in politics.

For more, Farai Chideya speaks with Marie Wilson.

Wilson ran the Ms. Foundation and was one of the founders of Take Your Sons and Daughters to Work Day.

Now, she's the president and founder of the White House Project — a non-partisan group working to get women into leadership positions.
