Party Rules

RepresentWomen undertakes all of our research projects to further understand the current landscape of women's political and judicial representation across demographic and social divides. We use our research to ground and develop our advocacy strategies to build a culture of change and progress for women's representation throughout the country. 

State political parties in all fifty states have rules that govern their chair and executive committee. Some of these states, such as Alabama and Arizona have rules that specifically call for gender balance in their party. 

RepresentWomen has begun to study state political party rules and the effect is has on women’s representation. We hope to continue this research to understand how these state rules could be implemented at the federal level to achieve gender parity.
