On this #internationalwomensday the ADLCC is proudly celebrating our current and past legislative candidates that have run for office in Arizona! Arizona already has a larger number of female legislators than any other state, now its time for the
#womeninblue to take over the House and Senate.
With the appointment of Rep.Geraldine Peten to the state legislature last year, Arizona jumped to the #1 spot for female legislatures. Now, Forty-percent of the legislature is comprised of women, a greater percentage than any other state!
Arizona was also one of the first states to send a woman to Congress back in 1932 and four out of the last six Governor of Arizona have been women.
