WCF President/CEO Sam Bennett’s Statement on Former Congresswoman and Vice-Presidential Candidate Geraldine Ferraro

“With the passing of Geraldine Ferraro on Saturday, we lose more than a pioneer for women’s leadership in politics. We lose a spirited inspiration and a revered role model. Her awe-inspiring career enabled women everywhere to recognize their potential as leaders in their own communities. Geraldine was a trailblazer, an inspiration, and a comrade. Quite simply, she was our hero. It is truly WCF’s privilege to honor Geraldine’s legacy by empowering pro-choice women to be directly involved at all levels of government and in every state. She will be sorely missed.”
