Today there are more women in public office than in any other point in history. More than 10,500 women serve as national parliamentarians in 2017, accounting for over 23 percent of total parliamentarians worldwide. There are millions of women politicians serving at sub-national levels, and many more women candidates who vie for political office in each election. Women voters are also registered in high numbers in most countries, oftentimes turning out on Election Day at the same rates as men. Increasing numbers of women are active in the field of electoral management, including as election staff and poll workers.
