State of the Texas Woman

We produce a biennial report that takes a snapshot look at women in Texas politics. 

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...
It is about being 
heard
