Groups Work To Draw Women Into State Government

Groups Work To Draw Women Into State Government
PIERRE, SD -

Of the roughly 175 candidates still in the running for the South Dakota House or Senate, roughly 26 percent are women.

Local and national groups are working to encourage more women to take roles in government. It's an effort that's moving slower than Barb Everist expected. She was the first woman to be Senate Majority Leader in the state in 2000.

But this is the first South Dakota general election in which a woman will be running for governor with a major party. Democrat Susan Wismer is challenging incumbent Gov. Dennis Daugaard. She says women are excited about the new landmark for women in the state.

As a state representative, she's one of the women who make up 23 percent of the state Legislature.
