California Women Lead – Call to Action

June 5, 2013 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Call To Action- What Will It Take To Elect More Women In Los Angeles?

The 2013 citywide elections shed a light on the need for more women to seek and win elected office in the City of Los Angeles. Of the ten largest cities nationwide, Los Angeles has the lowest percentage of women seated on the city council or holding citywide elected office. And in San Diego, San Jose, and San Francisco, women hold over 30% of the city council seats. Los Angeles hasn’t seen these levels since the late 1990’s.

How did the second largest city in the nation and the largest city in California get to this point? More importantly, how can we reverse this decline?
Join our panel of experts in a town hall discussion as California Women Lead issues a Call to Action.
