Introducing I Vote for Women!
The U.S. Women's Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce the launch of I Vote for Women (IVoteForWomen.com). Through this movement, the Women's Chamber focuses our tremendous voting and financial clout to support and elect women to office. As we come together, we will break through the status quo, dramatically raise our influence and put our own stamp on political leadership -- finally securing women-led progress in world leadership, human rights, fair pay and promotion, family-friendly work environments, retirement security and women-owned business growth. Learn more about I Vote for Women.
As you explore our website, you'll find: the IVFW Position Guide (used to help women understand the views of candidates), listing for federal and statewide candidates, news and reports, resources and information on how you can run for office, support candidates and get involved in the IVFW movement.
