Why She Runs

So, why aren’t more women running for office?

Studies show that the greatest hurdle for women in achieving gender parity in politics is not in the number of votes they get or their level of fundraising. It's overcoming the political ambition gap and convincing more women to run for office. That's where you come in! Are you or do you know a woman who would make a great candidate? Join our movement today!


If you are a current or former candidate or elected official, consider making a video of your own to support our campaign.
