12.10.16: Encourage awesome women to run for office

American women outnumber men by population and at the voting booth.

This one's for the ladies. We make up more than half of the US population, and we vote at a 4% higher rate than men -- and have for a long time. Still, 80% of members of Congress, and almost 90% of state governors, are men. It's time for a change. Today's call to action: encourage awesome women (maybe even you!) to run for office.
