"Working for RepresentWomen is important to me because their mission is concrete: increase the representation of women in politics while focusing on systems of reform; because no one can say, even though some may, that the underrepresentation of women in politics does not exist."

“I myself have never been able to find out precisely what feminism is: I only know that people call me a feminist whenever I express sentiments that differentiate me from a doormat” -Rebecca West, author

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.

With the 2018 midterm elections quickly approaching, American politics are once again in the spotlight. However, one area of American politics that has long being left in the shadows is the sovereign Native-American governments housed within our country. Native-American tribes, or “nations,” have separate, federally recognized governments, and they have the right to pass their own laws and run their own courts. For decades, the political representation of women and how to increase it has been extensively studied and discussed, but little research has been done on the representation of women in Native-American tribal governments. In an attempt to begin filling in this missing data, RepresentWomen has begun looking into the legislative and judicial branches of thirteen tribal governments.
