We are celebrating the 100-year anniversary of the 19th Amendment, but existing strategies to increase the number of women in government have only gotten us less than halfway to parity. We cannot wait another 100 years to reach gender parity in elected office. Now is the time to advance new and bold systems-based strategies that will target the barriers women face at every stage of the electoral process. The following presentation provides a helpful overview of why systems strategies matter and what RepresentWomen is doing to advocating for systems reform.
