On Thursday the 24th we joined representatives of women’s and girls’ groups, and other community-based organizations, to speak to the profound importance of having women’s voices within the New York City Council.

The Women’s Caucus of the New York City Council will released a new report entitled, “NOT MAKING IT HERE: WHY ARE WOMEN UNDERREPRESENTED IN NEW YORK CITY POLITICS”.

The report looks at the declining number of women in the City Council, how New York compares to other American cities, and the related public policy impacts. Currently only 13 of the City Council’s 51 seats are held by women, and that number may drop to as low as 9 in the coming year.
