Answering the call for political parity in Texas
What is political parity?
The term “political parity” means equality for women+ in appointed and elected office. Women make up 51% of the population but only 20% of public office.
Why focus on Texas?
No one knows how many women serve in public office in the United States down to the local level. Texas is the fastest-growing, largest battleground state - making it the best state to analyze.
Parity stands for more than being equal...
