One lucky New Yorker (sorry everyone else) over 21 will have the opportunity to win a pair of tickets to the world premiere screening and party for the new USA mini-series starring Sigourney Weaver in her first TV role playing Elaine Hammond, the former First Lady and current Secretary of State.

To win the tickets (which will be picked randomly and is not scientific at all) you just need to talk about who your favorite woman in politics is or was (she doesn't need to be alive) and why.  Put your answers in the comments section.

This contest will last 24 hours and will close at NOON EST June 20.

Description of the show:

POLITICAL ANIMALS is USA Network's highly anticipated Limited Series Event that pulls back the curtain on the polished facade of a former first-family as they navigate the complex world of political and personal ambition.  From acclaimed producers Greg Berlanti and Laurence Mark, the series stars Sigourney Weaver, Carla Gugino, Ellen Burstyn, Ciarán Hinds, James Wolk, Sebastian Stan and Brittany Ishibashi.

Political Animals premieres on USA Sunday, July 15th

    Bella Abzug was an amazing Feminist, social comentator, political creature and woman. I leave woman for the last adjective because she was songly the other words first. She made sure for the city of New York she worked. In the 70's she mar hex for woman's rights. She for gay rights. She for what was right. She was the model precurser for today's woman political machine. There should be a movie about her. But alas she is a NYC legend and needs to be more known.

    Hillary Clinton because she is amazing and seems to be really hitting her stride in the world of politics right now.  She makes women want to be called bitch in a GOOD WAY.

    Fannie Lou Hamer for her work as a civil rights activist, with the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party, and as a delegate to the '68 DNC to secure equality in voting rights. She took enormous risks, endured beatings, and remained a committed advocate until the end.

    My favorite woman in politics is Angela Davis! Not a politician, but her courage and convictions make her one of the most important people of the 20th century (and the present day).

    My favorite woman in politics was Jackie Kennedy. I like when the fashion becomes a part of the political dialogue.

    My favorite woman in politics is Elizabeth Warren because she is a true advocate for working Americans, who is a unsentimental fighter for economic justice. Economic justice being the underpinning upon which all of our rights rest, I submit that Ms. Warren has the over-arching big-picture consciousness with a heart in exactly the right place, with the people, that would make a great American President in 2016.
