Political parties have the power to fix this.
The status quo exists because they haven’t prioritized women’s equality… and we haven’t insisted.
That changes now.
Introducing measures that incentivize or require parties to work harder to better reflect the citizens they seek to serve enhances democracy.
Eighty countries around the world have already done this to make their parliaments more democratic.
Why? Because they recognize that individual action and “natural”
(incremental) change isn’t good enough.
Balance of power: it’s only fair.
Say NO to the status quo
Change doesn’t just happen; people make it happen.
