PA Legislature on the Thicket Ranking

Continuing a recent theme, I noticed a post on the National Conference of State Legislatures's blog, The Thicket. It lists each state's legislature and what percentage of the elected legislators are female. The national average is 24.4%; in Pennsylvania it is 14.6%. The only states with fewer women in their state legislatures are South Carolina, Oklahoma, Mississippi, and Alabama. Food for thought.
