Wanted: Women to Run for Public Office

Jul 20, 2012

More women should run for public office. That’s what three Tallahassee groups are saying as they hold a free event for women on Saturday, July 21, at Tallahassee City Hall, 300 S. Adams St.

Although women make up about half the population, they hold only 17 percent of U.S. Congress seats and similarly disproportionate numbers of state and local offices.
