Poised to Run: Women’s Routes to State Legislatures

February 12, 2010

The Eagleton Institute of Politics’ Center for American Women and Politics‘ recently issued a new report, Poised to Run, calling it “the most comprehensive study ever conducted on state legislators’ routes to office.”

Findings from a nationwide survey “compare women and men, examining their decisions to seek office, previous political experiences, and personal backgrounds.”

Highlights of the study include:

  • Women Need to be Recruited
  • Political Parties Matter
  • Organizations Help Women Run
  • More Women Can Run
  • Resources are Important

As an organization committed to fielding diverse, qualified candidates, we encourage everyone to take a look at the study (which is available here in pdf form), and welcome anyone interested in running for office on any level to contact us.
