Encourage a woman you know to run for office

Women make up half of the U.S. population, but only 23.7% of Congress. The numbers are even lower for women of color, who make up just 9% of Congress. In order to have a true representative democracy, we need more women in elected office. For a helping hand, check out BLFF’s Keys to Elected Office: The Essential Guide for Women or SheShouldRun’s Ask a Woman to Run resource.

Make your voice heard

This year is the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which gave some American women the right to vote. Women’s History Month is the perfect time to recognize the long and continuing fight for voting rights in the U.S. by getting involved in an election or political issue you care about!
