OVERVIEW | WOMEN'S LEGISLATIVE NETWORK

The Women's Legislative Network of NCSL is the professional development organization that includes every female state legislator in the 50 states, United States territories, and the District of Columbia. The Network began when female legislators gathered at NCSL meetings in the late 1970s. It was formally organized in 1985 at the Annual Meeting in Seattle and later became a core program of the NCSL Foundation for State Legislatures.

The mission of the Women's Legislative Network is to promote the participation, empowerment, and leadership of women legislators.

The Network does not advocate for or against specific state policies, but sponsors informational briefings so legislators can better understand an issue and learn from one another. The Network also sponsors skill-building workshops for women legislators. The network hosts receptions or lunches at NCSL meetings to allow time for women legislators to interact and learn from each other.
