Women lead in crisis. Now let's get them in office.

In order to reach equal representation in our lifetime, we need to build a Community of women who are curious about the possibilities of public leadership.

Join the Community

Women represent 51% of the US population.

So why do they represent less than a third of the nation’s elected leaders? We can’t expect to achieve the best policies when nearly half the population is shut out from policy making. By tapping the full talent pool this country has to offer, there is no problem we can’t solve.

How We Do It

By identifying and tackling the barriers to elected leadership, She Should Run convinces women from all political leanings, ethnicities, sexual identities, and backgrounds to see themselves as future candidates. Our programs unveil the many pathways to leadership, guide them toward discovering their "why," and connect them with a supportive Community who are in varying stages of their own journeys, ultimately building their confidence toward a future run for office.

What You Can Do

She Should Run provides women who are curious about public office with a starting place to explore their options. And because it takes an ecosystem to get more women running, we give everyone ways to play a role in transforming the face of government – both local and national. Here’s how you can increase the pipeline of women considering a run.
