Moving Beyond the Gender Binary

Beyond the Gender Binary

Improving the representation of only cis-women will not solve our current representation crisis, in fact it will only compound representational problems rife within American democracy. 

Gender does not exist in a binary and neither should representation, and everyone across the spectrum deserves fair representation at every level of politics. Right now our elected officials are overwhelmingly cis-men. Political gatekeepers and electoral structures must be changed to improve the representation of cis-women, transgender folk and nonbinary individuals alike.
