A social media series showcasing women running for alderman in Chicago
These are the women who are running for alderman in Chicago and we want you to know who they are!
Currently, there are only 14 hard-working women on our City Council – that’s just 28%! Through our social media series, we want to help get our next City Council to represent OUR voice — after all, 51% of Chicago residents are women! Bringing in more gender diversity to our local government will create more collaborative efforts and help prioritize what’s truly important to the well-being of the citizens of Chicago.
From schools to clean water to community safety and more, we asked all 61 female aldermanic candidates across 37 wards to answer questions around issues that are important to women. The candidates also shared with us who they are, their ward, stories about the women in their life, and why you should vote for them!
Daily this month leading up to election day, February 26, we are highlighting female candidates on our social media channels, so check us out on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram @SheVotesIL or check out our She Votes Alderman! page on our website in the link below to see a list of all the women running for alderman and to learn more about who they are and their message for a better Chicago.
She Votes Illinois uses an inclusive definition of “women” to include trans women, genderqueer women, and non-binary people who identify as femme.
