The number of women in state politics, is much smaller than the number of men.
However, there are groups on both sides of the aisle, tying to place more women in politics.
Only one democratic female governor, no female democratic congressional delegate.
These are numbers groups like Emerge Kentucky and Kentucky women democrat groups are trying to combat.
"Because of those statistics that is the reason many of us work to try to get more women involved," said Romanza Johnson, President Kentucky Woman Democrats.
Emerge Kentucky really focuses on getting democratic women involved in the political world.
However, republican women are doing the same too, trying to get women involved in any type of way through programs like Kentucky round table.
"Some women are great at running for office, that's what their goal is. Other people just want to be behind the scenes and help candidates. Other people like to raise money, other people like to have fundraisers in their homes, we try to tell people there are many avenues where they can get involved in the political system," said Gail Russell, President Kentucky Round table.
Those involved says it's different to get a man to run for office than a woman.
"Women often don't feel like they can run for office, or they don't know how they can get involved, whereas a man typically says, I just want to run for office and they do so. Women need to be asked," said Shaska Hines, Warren County Kentucky Republicans.
So, Which party is doing better for women in the Commonwealth of Kentucky?
"Well, I would probably be biased giving an answer to that, but I certainly hope they would, and we do just want to keep encouraging people," said Johnson.
"We just have a great slate of women that are coming up through the ranks that are probably running for higher office in the future, and they're great role models in encouraging people to run," said Russell.
Regardless of partisanship, women on both sides see the need for more women in the political world.
Emerge Kentucky had women like Rita Smart go through its program, she's running for her 2nd term, and Kentucky Round table supports republicans like Alecia Webb-Edginton and Kim King.
