RepresentWomen's Vision

A thriving democracy is within our reach, but new strategies are needed to level the playing field for women candidates across the racial, ideological, and geographic spectrum so that our nation's rich diversity is reflected in our elected bodies.

Electing more women to government will strengthen our democracy by making it more representative, reviving bipartisanship & collaboration, improving policy outcomes, encouraging a new style of leadership, and cultivating trust in our elected bodies.

 

Join us in turning public passion for gender parity into action and results

The Path to Gender Parity

The U.S. ranks behind 76 nations for women's representation, with women making up about a quarter or less of every level of government. Yet progress is possible. With the momentum of a growing movement pushing us forward, we can win gender parity in our lifetimes - but only with new strategies that target the structural causes of women’s underrepresentation.
