The Rundown: Glass Ceiling Breaking News

In 2018 a record number of 476 women ran for the US House of Representatives.

In 2020 women are once again shattering the glass ceiling by stepping up and running for office at unprecedented numbers.

According to the Center for American Women and Politics, 490 women have filed to run for the US House, and 14 states still have outstanding filing deadlines.

Let’s keep the momentum going and make sure that women are winning at unprecedented rates, too!
