Elect Women 2012 - the latest from the 2012 Project
Currently, the U.S. ranks 94th in the world for the percentage of women in Congress. Only 17% of congressional seats are held by women. In fact, the 2010 election marked the first time in 30 years that the number of elected women decreased.
That's why we're posting information for interested women to learn more about women candidates and how to help them win.
Go to the MissRepresentation webpage and check out the links to the 2012 Women's Election Tracker to find women running in your area, volunteer opportunities with candidates, and resources for your own future run.
