Did you know that the US currently ranks 104th in the WORLD for gender parity in politics? Yes you heard that right… 104th - right in between Kyrgyzstan & Tajikistan. But with the rise of the modern women’s movement the #pinkwave has begun, and thousands of woman are running for office. The documentary film Represent takes a personal look at the challenges facing female candidates, and explores both the internal and systemic barriers to office. We chose three stories that tackle these issues head on.
When I learned about these facts and the efforts of the all-women crew of the documentary film, Represent, I was astounded and immediately wanted to know how I could help. We teamed up to create a political-style yard sign and poster asking the question “Why stop at 50%? Why not go all the way and get as many women into government positions as possible?”
