Nevada one of top states for women in state legislatures
Nevada Appeal – February 24, 2018
Nevada is on the bottom of so many lists that when you see one that puts us near the top, you just have to shout it from the rooftops!
The National Conference of State Legislatures just released its annual study showing Nevada to be one of the top states where women have been elected to their state legislatures.
Currently, 39.7 percent of our 63 state legislators is comprised of women: 17 in the Assembly and 5 in the Senate. Only Arizona and Vermont rank higher at 40 percent. The legislature of our dominant liberal neighbor, California, is comprised of only 22.5 percent women.
