When women run for office, they are just as likely to win as men. The problem is that women are significantly less likely to run in the first place: there’s a massive gender gap in political ambition. Experts cite many reasons for this gap, but two stand out: women feel less qualified to run than men despite having similar education and experience, and women are less likely than men to receive positive encouragement to run for office.
Our Women Run! program will knock down both of those barriers for women of all political parties and ideologies.
