Democracy = the power of the people. Women are 51% of the people. Yet unlike men, the vast majority of women and girls have never even imagined their power in elected leadership. We can change this together.

Will you join us?

The majority of women and girls in the U.S. are not thinking about the essential role they play in public leadership. This needs to be part of our everyday lives.

The way forward starts with you

Use your voice to start a conversation about civic engagement, encourage a woman to lead, or give to support She Should Run’s mission.

Encourage a Woman You Know

Women don’t run at the same rate as men. One reason? They aren’t asked. Send a digital postcard via email, social media, or SMS to a woman who should lead.

Which Fictional Woman Should Run?

Select the traits you’d like to see in an elected official and we’ll tell you which fictional woman would make the best candidate.

Give to She Should Run

Support She Should Run to ensure that our message and resources reach and empower every woman who is not yet thinking about running for office but should be.

The time for change is now.
