Women make up 17 percent of Congress and 24 percent of state legislatures. That puts the US at 69th in the world in the number of women in elected office.
The 2012 Project is a national campaign to elect an unprecedented number of women in the next election, when a presidential race and redistricting overlap for the first time in 20 years. That creates huge opportunities for women – and moms.
