Running for office is expensive, and having adequate campaign funding is critical. This cycle, more women are running for office than ever before, but they also face an array of challenges, including more difficulty raising money than men.
Represent Women’s 2020 PAC Report found that “Although success rates between men and women are roughly equal when in the same race type, to win as a woman requires more money.”
