Imagine what it would be like if just 10 women were serving in our state assembly? Now imagine our 23 woman Congressional delegation shrinking to a mere 10 because there is no pipeline of women to elect to higher office.
Unfortunately, those images could soon be a reality if the number of elected women in our state legislature continues to decline.
November 4, 2014 is our opportunity to envision a brighter future by electing more women to serve in Sacramento because electing women matters.
Women running for the legislature rarely get noticed beyond their respective districts, despite their pivotal roles in advancing pro-choice and gender equity policies, and in the budgetary actions necessary to implement these policies. But their presence in our legislature is extremely important. And our legislature is our farm team for higher offices here in California or Washington, D.C.
It is a fact that the number of women in our legislature is shrinking.
