A more representative government

In Wyoming, women rarely get elected to the Legislature. One group is looking to change that.

"Women continue to be chronically underrepresented in the statehouse. It’s an acknowledged problem in state and national politics, enough so that U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney and the Republican Party have committed to efforts to boost female representation throughout the GOP at the federal level through a mix of fundraisers, political events and candidate mentorship, according to Cheney spokesperson Jeremy Adler."

“We’re trying to make sure that there are women in the pipeline, and that they are running for things like the (Laramie County Community College) board,” said Simon. “We need them running for these nonpartisan local offices so that there are women who understand the process, who have gotten the experience of running the campaign at a hyper local level, and are really building that base of women and creating a broader group of people who can not only rely on each other, but can also start to feed all those higher levels of office, too.”
