Why does it matter to have more women running for office?
Kelly Dittmar puts it this way, “Elected women don’t just shed light on certain issues that might otherwise be ignored; they also contribute perspectives to legislative debates that otherwise might not be heard."
Cowgirl Run Fund puts it this way: Your voice matters!
The Center for American Women and Politics reports that more women have filed to run for US House seats in 2020 than in any year in history. "The 490 women who have filed this year outpace even the record-breaking 2018 midterms." And that's before Wyoming and 13 other states complete their filing periods.
