Gender equality is essential to the health and potential of societies. It is key to empowering the full potential of younger generations. Yet, in the United States, women represent fewer than one third of elected leaders. This places us 66th on the global ranking of women in national government.
Our Mission & Vision
She Should Run is a national nonpartisan nonprofit working to dramatically increase the number of women considering a run for public office. We are driven by a bold goal to inspire 250,000 women from all walks of life to take their first steps toward public leadership and join our community by 2030.
Through a robust virtual community, we offer simple actions women can take: workshops, courses, resources, and networking – all meant for the woman who wants to show up for her community but who isn’t ready to commit to a run for office.
In order to have a multiplier effect on gender equality, She Should Run underpins its programming strategy on five issues poised to impact women and girls the most over the long term.Learn More
