Game Changer: Allyson Schwartz

Allyson Schwartz


Allyson would be a strong woman leader with the fresh views needed to be champion for women in Pennsylvania. She is also a first-generation American, born to a Holocaust survivor and a Korean War veteran. For years, Allyson has been the only woman in Pennsylvania’s congressional delegation. If elected, she would become Pennsylvania’s first woman governor. Currently, there is only one woman Governor in the country who supports reproductive choices and options, New Hampshire Governor Maggie Hassan. Allyson's election would break another important glass ceiling that is often overlooked.


Governor – Pennsylvania – Challenger. Governor Corbett has consistently presented legislation placing restrictions on women’s health clinics and mandatory ultrasounds to tighten the already strict reproductive health laws in Pennsylvania.


Allyson first ran for Congress in 2004, when she was first endorsed by WCF.

She is currently serving her 5th term in the U.S. House of Representatives, where she is the only woman in the Pennsylvania delegation.

She was the third woman to ever serve in the Pennsylvania Senate. Recognized as a “trailblazer” by the Philadelphia Daily News, Allyson has produced positive results for Pennsylvania during her nearly 30 years of public service.

  • ★ 50/50 Representation

    Why should good government depend on only half of the nation’s human capital? WCF commits to 50/50 representation of women and men 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.
