IN THE U.S. FOR WOMEN IN STATE LEGISLATURE
Women are underrepresented in political leadership not only in New York but nationwide.
More women’s voices in leadership is essential. Why? Because our perspectives are valuable.
Women in politics is better for everyone. When our politics resemble our people then laws and policies will address the realities of people’s lives. Women in office are more likely to bring up women’s issues because they have lived them. From standing up against sexual harassment to advocating for fair pay policies, women in office are critical to moving these issues forward.
In New York State, every year is an election year. You don’t have to wait to elect a new Congress or elect a new President, you can make real change right now in your own town.
