From the Database “About” Page
represents the most complete collection of information anywhere in the world about women elected officials in the United States.
The database includes full historical listings for women who have held office at the congressional, statewide elected executive, and state legislative levels nationwide. For each woman officeholder, the database includes their geographic information, party identification, and race identification where available.
This tool expands on the officeholder database that the Center for American Women and Politics (CAWP) has long kept and shared with researchers, and, crucially, transforms it into a searchable, online format for public access. It contains entries for more than eleven thousand women officeholders dating back to 1893 when a woman was first elected to a statewide executive position.
