While there are several reasons I believe in efforts to support female candidates, my semester abroad in Costa Rica gave me a new perspective on gender parity pursuits. Studying their electoral system and gender quota laws prompted me to consider what institutional reforms would look like in the United States and strengthened my dedication to advocacy surrounding this topic.

As an intern with RepresentWomen, I hope to continue learning about other institutional reforms and advocacy efforts within the American political system. I appreciate the organization’s recognition that there are both structural options that can be considered and cultural conversations that need to occur in order to bring about equality- this is a long-term goal that will require effort on multiple fronts. However, I also believe the precedents set in other parts of the world are both inspiring and informational, and I look forward to collaborating with the team towards this vision.
