Proportional Representation and Women Representatives

This is a repost from A New Kind of Third Party.

This is a very good summary of the evidence that the use of Proportional Representation seems to increase the percent of women representatives. But how do we get the League of Women Voters to support the use of 3-seated Largest Remainder Hare elections for state representative and city council elections in the United States?
