Support Women in Rural Communities
More than 19 million women live in rural America. The perception is that rural America is white, but the reality is that rural America is composed of individuals of many diverse backgrounds, including Latina, Indigenous and Native, Black, and Asian women and women of other races and ethnicities.
Despite this reality, few women, especially women of color, have held elected or appointed leadership positions in rural communities. The end result is an overall lack of civic participation and political power in rural America.
