I Vote for Women

By effectively focusing our leadership, political giving and votes -- we will push past the tipping point and finally breakthrough the status quo. With women's focused leadership at all levels of government and business, we will achieve greater economic security, opportunity and advancement, family-friendly work environments, women-owned business growth, retirement security, equal rights and human rights.

When we focus our power, we shape the world

Women Leading Politics and Policy

As we come together to focus our tremendous voting clout with candidates who are supportive of our views and issues – we will breakthrough the status quo, dramatically raise our influence and incomes, put our stamp on political and world leadership and the business/employer marketplace – we will finally secure women-led progress in world leadership, human rights, fair pay and promotion, family-friendly work environments, retirement security and women-owned business growth.

This transformation will consummate women's long path to political and economic power and create a better world for all.

The women's movement is far from over. In many ways – we have just begun.
