About the Event

Join Represent PA on January 14 at 8:30 am when Kelly Dittmar, Associate Professor of Political Science, Rutgers-Camden shares her insights and data about how women did in the 2020 elections.

In addition to Kelly’s role as an AP of Poly Sci, she’s also the Director of Research and Center for American Women and Politics (CAWP) Scholar.

Some things we know:

  • A record number of women ran for office in 2020—surpassing the record set just two years prior
  • More Republican women ran for U.S. House seats than ever before
  • President-elect Biden won the votes of 57 % of women, compared to 45 % of men. In comparison, President Trump won 42 % of women’s votes and 53 % of men’s votes
  • At least 141 (105D, 36R) women will serve in the 117th Congress; a new record

So, with all that good national news, what happened in Pennsylvania?

Join moderator Christine Jacobs, Executive Director of Represent PA and Kelly, this Thursday to hear the rest of the story.
