We didn`t always rank so low. The state was the first to have a woman as Speaker of the House in the legislature. North Dakota was also the first state to elect a woman to a statewide office.
Now only one woman holds a statewide position.
There are also 23 state boards that have no women serving on them, which they say violates the state century code.
"They`re supposed to be gender balanced in relation to the population being served and that I don`t think is taking place. So it would be nice if on the Governor`s website there would be an indication of what that gender balance should be and what that gender balance is," said North Dakota Women`s Network Consultant Linda Johnson Wurtz.
