Let's Have A Talk
Like breakfast and want more women in office? Well, you're in luck. She Should Run is proud to be teaming up with the Congressional Women’s Staff Association for our "National Conversation" panel on December 5th. Want to be a part of the conversation? RVSP here


Polls Don’t Lie
According to new data, Hillary’s lead in 2016 is significantly larger than it was eight years ago—and she hasn’t even announced she’s running (yet). Happy Hillidays, y’all.


Rankin Rules 
This week, Vogue highlighted Jeannette Rankin, the first woman elected into Congress who strongly believed women could transform American politics. She was elected before American women even had the right to vote, so let's take her word for it.


Stained Glass Ceiling
The Church of England chipped away at the glass ceiling last week by voting to allow women to become bishops, inequality that dates back 2,000 years. Next ceiling to smash: Presidency.


20 Men. One Sexist Mission.
Top gavels have been assigned for House committee leadership roles and they include twenty men...and one woman. Aw, you really shouldn’t have!


Don’t Blame The Name
A recent Buzzfeed survey found many people believe the word “feminism” should be replaced. How about instead of changing the name—we replace inequity with equity and call it day?


Ubergate
Last week, an Uber executive said he would invest a million dollars to smear a woman journalist who criticized the company. In other investing news, I became a shareholder with She Taxi.


Ban Blanc
"Pick-up artist" Julien Blanc has been banned from a number of countries ‘cause people have had enough of the misogynistic dating coach. Some people’s 15 minutes are just 15 minutes too long.

  • ★ 50% Representation

    Why should good government depend on only half of the nation’s human capital? WCF commits to 50% representation of women in elected office by 2028.

  • ★ Common Ground

    Common ground just means problems get solved more collaboratively, for the good of more people. It’s the bedrock of our leadership at home and abroad.

  • ★ Viability for Election

    It takes more than money to make a candidate worth electing. WCF looks for guts, street sense, situational awareness, resilience -- the full range of gifts a woman brings to the race.

  • ★ Non-Partisan

    A woman’s place is in every party, every elected office, at every level. Period.
