About Hoosier Women Lead
Progress in advancing women in elected offices has stagnated over the last decade. Nationally, women make up only about 17% of the U.S. Congress. In Indiana, about 21% of the General Assembly are women. In the Indiana Commission for Women's recent Hoosier Women Speak initiative, women's leadership, particularly in policy-making offices, was identified as one of the top five priority areas. Participants indicated that women lacked preparation and support to pursue policy-making careers.
