The 23%: Conversations With Women in Government

The Women Leading the First Study of Diversity in State and Local Government

"Most local governments are run by white men, so there hasn’t needed to be a conversation about what diversity looks like."


Women only make up 23 percent of government roles at the state and local level. In our new podcast, called "The 23%: Conversations With Women in Government," Governing reporter Mattie Quinn will sit down twice a month with members of that 23-percent club.

She'll be talking to accomplished women about what motivated them to run for office, lessons they’ve learned along the way and the policy battles they're gearing up for this year.
