Completed: Fall 2017

According to some accounts, use of infographics in marketing efforts have risen over 1200% in the past three years. Infographics are not new phenomenon. In fact, Library Journal’s DigitalShift the first recorded infographic was Charles Joseph Minard’s portrayal of the losses suffered by Napoleon’s army in the Russian campaign of 1812. In recent years, they have become a strong tool to quickly educate a general public on specific issues and topics.

My infographic is a compilation of statistics from a study on women in elected positions by Rutgers University’s Eagleton Institute for Politics. This infographic was created using the graphic design software Canva. The purpose behind my project is to create an easy-to-read guide on women in political positions. I outline states with the most and least elected women officials, expand on the growth of women in politics over the past 20 years and give relevant information on the origin of women serving in political positions.
