California state Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson, D-Santa Barbara, poses in front of portraits of two former California governors, Republicans George Deukmejian, left and Pete Wilson, at the Capitol in Sacramento, Calif., on Wednesday, June 29, 2016. Jackson had long been active in her community beyond her work as a lawyer and former prosecutor, but it took the encouragement of one of her mentors to convince her to run for state Assembly in 1998. “Women tend to ask permission, and we’re never quite sure we are good enough or ready enough,” she said. “Men generally don’t have those same concerns.” (AP Photo/Rich Pedroncelli)
