The Gender Parity Index scores women's representation at the local, state legislative, state-wide executive, and federal levels and assigns each state a grade based on its performance.

We need a reference point to see what strategies are working to elect more women, and this index provides that baseline."

- Cynthia Richie Terrell, RepresentWomen Founder and Director

Our 2018 Gender Parity Index Report finds that women are underrepresented at the national, state, and local level, and that parity for men and women in elected office is unlikely to occur without structural changes in recruitment, electoral, and legislative rules.
