We surveyed over 700 women to uncover everything from what's motivating them to their biggest fears, and the results are fascinating.
This year, thousands of women have said they want to run for office. What’s motivating them? In partnership with She Should Run and VoteRunLead, we surveyed 750 female potential candidates to find out.
Editor's note: Most percentages do not add up to 100, as survey takers were allowed to choose more than one answer.
43% after the November 2016 election
30% to make an impact on an issue they care about
28% to make a difference in their communities
5% to inspire the next generation of women
28% say the results of the last presidential election influenced them
16% say they’ve been asked to run by others
