RepresentWomen is a 501 c3 nonpartisan nonprofit organization working to change the system to provide women equal access to both appointed and elected offices. Instead of placing the burden of change on the shoulders of individual women, we advocate for institutional reforms that will help women run, win, serve, and lead at rates equal to men. Some of the reforms we advocate for include recruitment targets for party leaders so more women run, multi-winner ranked-choice voting so more women win, fairer legislative rules (i.e. proxy voting) so more women serve, and gender-balanced appointments so more women lead.
At RepresentWomen, we believe that a strong democracy requires equal representation for women across ideological, racial, socioeconomic, and geographic lines. Through research and advocacy, we are paving the way for women in American politics-- not just for some women today, but for all women for good.
