NC Women’s Summit aims to keep momentum going after midterms
Posted on November 5, 2018 by David Floyd
In 2018, women legislators were outnumbered about 3-to-1 by their male colleagues in the North Carolina General Assembly.
It’s an imbalance many hope will shift after the general election on Tuesday, Nov. 6.
“I love my men,” says Sen. Terry Van Duyn, D-Buncombe. “I’m not suggesting that they’re not doing a good job, but I think we would be better served if we [women] were more significantly represented in the General Assembly.”
Whatever the outcome of the election, advocates with Women AdvaNCe, a nonpartisan education institute, aim to energize politically engaged women during an all-day summit on Saturday, Nov. 10, at The Collider in Asheville — just days after the general election.
