Weekend Reading on Women's Representation March 29, 2019


Dear friends,
I had a piece in The Hill this week about how best to honor the legacy of the brave women whose work got us to where we are today, here is a short excerpt:

Sojourner Truth didn’t deliver her iconic “Ain’t I a Woman?” address for the sake of an inspirational Instagram post. Susan B. Anthony didn’t champion women’s voting rights for a special museum exhibit. A women-themed happy hour was hardly the motivation for Sacagawea’s dangerous trek across the country with Lewis and Clark.

Yet we continue to celebrate Women's History Month with hashtags and Ruth Bader Ginsburg swag.

We owe it to Sojourner and Susan and Sacagawea, and all the fearless women revolutionaries who came before us, to celebrate women not only in panel discussions and museum exhibits but with the institutional reforms that create fair and equal representation.
We have update RepresentWomen's Gender Parity Index for 2019! Check out the map and rankings below, read this page to learn more about the methodology, and stay tuned for the full report in the coming weeks!
