New Jersey ranks 41st of the 50 states in the number of women in the state Legislature.
Just 15.8 percent of New Jersey's state lawmakers are women: 19 women out of 120 Legislators. That's about the same percentage as in 1927.
New Jersey has had only one female governor - Christine Todd Whitman - in its 218-year history.
Fifty-seven percent of the people who vote are women.
