Yeah! You know me!
In case you don't know what #WIP is, let me bring you up to speed
#WIP stands for Women In Politics
and believe me we all need that
If you're a man, a woman, transgender, somewhere on the gender spectrum
We all need #WIP
And here is why you should be down with #WIP
Women are one of the most underrepresented groups in America.
Women only represent 18.5% of US Congress
Did you know:
According to American University, women are much less likely than men to think they are qualified to run for office and women are less likely than men to receive the suggestion to run for office – from anyone.
Even though we may be underrepresented, we still contribute a ton
including how men vote. According to the sibling gender effect, boys who have sisters are more likely to be republicans than boys who don’t have sisters.
Women, on average, value economic security over all other things; this is something that can be determined by politics, yet women don't seem to participate.
So now let me ask you:
Is there any reason you aren't down with #WIP?
Tweet: "I'm down with #WIP" so we can start a movement and show that we want and need more #WIP in our lives
