THE STATE PARITY PROJECT
A Monumental Shift in Women’s Representation
In recent years, we’ve seen a dramatic rise in the number of women seeking and winning elected office. Despite being 51% of the nation’s population, women are still less than 25% of elected state officials. We need a monumental, positive shift in women’s representation to reach parity in elected offices throughout the nation.
We have pinpointed three key states where we can train enough women to create gender-equal state legislatures: Georgia, Minnesota, and New York. Help us propel 127 women to run and win – thus shifting these legislatures to 51% women by 2024.
