Complimentary “Women in Pennsylvania Politics” Article for PNA Members

The Donald P. Bellisario College of Communications at Penn State, in conjunction with the Pennsylvania NewsMedia Association (PNA), has provided an article about Pennsylvania women on the political stage.  This article is available to our members to publish in print or online at no cost.

Iraq War veteran Stacy Garrity pulled off a monumental feat in Pennsylvania this election cycle— she was elected state treasurer and, except for appellate judges, became only the ninth woman ever in Pennsylvania to hold statewide office.

Garrity’s success does not reflect reality for many females who have campaigned for executive or legislative positions in Pennsylvania. Women may have made progress when it comes to political representation in the United States over the years, but an examination into the state-by-state numbers shows those gains haven’t happened equally among states – especially in Pennsylvania.
