Since we haven’t been hearing from any women in politics lately, from the front page of NYTimes.com:
For example, we haven’t heard from Hillary Clinton’s voice in a few minutes.
I typed “female legislators” into Google and the first thing that came up was:
Approximately 1,830 women will serve in the 50 state legislatures in 2017.
So the average statehouse has 36.6 female legislators. Is that “few?”
It goes on to say:
Women will make up 24.8 percent of all state legislators nationwide. This represents little change from the 2016 session’s ratio of 24.4 percent.
Back in 2009, women made up 24.2% of state legislators.
In general, not much has changed with women’s representation in most jobs in a few (or more) decades.
