Join us as we gather to celebrate International Women's Day and learn more about Representation2020's work to win gender parity in our lifetimes!
Despite millions of dollars spent to elect women in 2016, progress toward parity is stalled at every level of elected office in the United States. The US now ranks in 100th place for women's representation worldwide!
Women's voices, wisdom and perspective are needed now, more than ever, to advance policy outcomes, reduce polarization, and strengthen our democratic institutions.
The Representation2020 team is determined to increase the number of women in office by working with allies from across the political spectrum to adopt the recruitment rules, voting systems, and legislative norms to elect women that are working in higher ranked nations and a growing number of jurisdictions in the US.
