Originally published in The Fulcrum, March 9th, 2022. Katie Usalis of RepresentWomen, a nonpartisan organization that advocates for more women in office, shares that thanks to the data collection work of the Inter-Parliamentary Union, we know there are continued global trends towards gender balance.
