Accessibility

RepresentWomen is committed to making web and social media content accessible for disabled people and those whose primary language is not English.

Website Accessibility 

RepresentWomen is committed to the fair representation of all underrepresented communities. While we focus on women’s representation, we recognize that women of other marginalized groups face unique barriers to engaging in the democratic process, advocating for reforms, and winning representation. 

We want to ensure our research is available to everyone and so we are taking steps to ensure our website and social media content is accessible. This includes integrating UserWay into our website and creating translated microsites for our key research. 

UserWay

In 2021, the RepresentWomen team released a report that explores the accessibility of US politics. The report provides an introduction to the topic of Disabled women's political participation in America, the barriers they face as candidates, and how well-designed structural reforms can help to make the political process more accessible for all. 

Language-Based Accessibility

The team at RepresentWomen is also working with Wolfestone to translate our women's representation, ranked choice voting, Gender Parity Index, and international research into Spanish, French, Chinese, Tagalog, Vietnamese, and Arabic - as these are the top languages spoken in the United States whose speakers are the least likely to speak English.
