CHANGING THE FACE OF POWER
Women Winning’s mission is to recruit, train, support, and elect pro-choice women from all political parties to all levels of public office.
Since our founding in 1982, the number of pro-choice women county commissioners, mayors, and state legislators in Minnesota has more than doubled — but we still have a long way to go.
Today, pro-choice women are stepping up to run for office in record numbers. It’s up to all of us to stand up, sign up, show up, and get them elected.
IN THE CHANGE
What’s New at Women Winning
When I was a little girl, my mom would bring me along to Women Winning events to show me what it looks like for a woman to take a seat at the table. She would say, “You don’t have a choice, you are privileged. You have a voice and you need to use it. It’s not an option to not use it.” She was teaching me to “show up” as a woman.
The Minnesota State Senate is comprised of 67 members. Today, only 10 of those members are pro-choice women. With a special election coming up on February 5th, we already have an opportunity to gain a seat. Women Winning is proud to announce our endorsement of Michelle Lee for Minnesota Senate, District 11!
We are thrilled to announce that Alana Petersen, one of Minnesota’s most influential and respected political leaders, has been elected Chair of the Women Winning Board of Directors! We look forward to Alana’s leadership and vision as we continue to build on the powerful momentum of 2018.
