Research Agenda

The Women's Council has been tracking the number of women in Wisconsin's state and local elected offices since 2005.  The Council publishes statewide studies, factsheets and other research products which can be found on the Publications page. We also partner with organizations such as the League of Wisconsin Municipalities and the Wisconsin Counties Association to educate and extend our research opportunities. The Women's Council is a leader nationally in tracking and reporting on the status of and trends in women serving in local elected office and has inspired similar projects in other states.
