‘Gaslit’ Retells the Story of Watergate from an Unfamiliar Perspective

Like most of history, the Watergate scandal is typically a story told by men, about men. Gaslit is a re-telling of the Watergate scandal from an unfamiliar perspective.

But does a diverse Cabinet matter for the U.S. public? Evidence points to yes.
