Ready To Run?
Oklahoma is 42nd in the nation for women serving in state legislature. If women’s voices are going to be heard, we need a legislature that reflects the people it serves, and that means we need more women in public office.
WHY AREN’T MORE WOMEN RUNNING?
- Women face unique expectations and barriers.
- Women are often their own worst critics, believing they are unqualified or unprepared to run for public office.
- Women typically will not run unless asked, and too few women are asked.
