Game Changer: Donna Christensen

Donna Christensen


Congresswoman Donna Christensen has shattered the glass ceiling many times over: as a woman of color and single mother in Congress, the first woman Delegate to Congress from the U.S. Virgin Islands, the first woman to represent an offshore territory, and the first woman physician to serve in the U.S. House of Representatives.


Governor – Virgin Islands – Open Seat.


Congresswoman Christensen has been a strong supporter of the Virgin Islands’ Women's Coalition and other organizations that advocate for women, especially against abuse.

She has always participated in programs on the Hill and elsewhere that addressed women's issues and is actively involved in the Virgin Islands Commission on Women's issues and the Congressional caucus on Women's Issues.

Before being elected to Congress, she practiced family medicine for 21 years.

  • ★ 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.
