MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - The five women holding New Hampshire's top political offices are participating in a panel discussion on the role women play in politics.

Gov.-elect Maggie Hassan, U.S. Sens. Jeanne Shaheen and Kelly Ayotte and U.S. Reps.-elect Ann McLane Kuster and Carol Shea-Porter will talk about what their lives are like as female politicians Friday at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics.

Shaheen, Ayotte, Kuster and Shea-Porter are the nation's first all-female congressional delegation. Hassan is New Hampshire's second female governor. Shaheen was its first. Ayotte is a Republican. The others are Democrats.

The sold-out event is sponsored by the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce, the New Hampshire Women's Initiative and the institute.
