CHANGING THE FACE OF POWER
Since 1982, Women Winning has been building a coalition of people of all backgrounds, gender identities, and political affiliations united in our mission to recruit, train, and elect pro-choice women to all levels of public office — from park board to President of the United States. We’ve endorsed and elected thousands of candidates, tripling the number of pro-choice women holding elected office in Minnesota.
This is a new era of pro-choice women’s leadership. Pro-choice women continue to step up to run for office and Women Winning will be with them at every step on the campaign trail in 2019, 2020, and beyond.
IN THE CHANGE
What’s New at Women Winning
For the first time in our nation’s history, MULTIPLE pro-choice women are competitively vying for President of the United States. This is a historic moment — and national and local media are taking note. Women Winning Executive Director, Meggie Wittorf, sat down for an interview with KARE 11 about women running for office and the stakes in 2020. SPOILER ALERT: Women can and do WIN elections.
“We have a number of women running for President and, while they still face a bigger uphill challenge than the men running, we can see [sexism] and we are more prepared to talk about it. The sunlight helps us. These conversations are uncomfortable, but it’s how we clear the path.”
With perpetual threats to choice at the federal level — from the elimination of Title X funding to the anti-choice majority on the U.S. Supreme Court — state legislatures are fundamental to protecting reproductive rights… Early support is critical and Women Winning is proud to endorse this slate of formidable pro-choice women running in the most competitive State Senate and House races in Minnesota.
