Endorsement Criteria

50/50 Representation of Women and Men in Elected Office!

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.

WCF supports women candidates who actively advance the concept that women make up more than half the population and it makes sense to elect them to office in numbers roughly equal to men nationwide.

Common Ground

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

WCF endorses women candidates who demonstrate through specific achievements the ability to reach common ground solutions.

Viability for Election

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

WCF chooses women candidates who show substantial evidence of the personal, professional, and political capabilities required to win and govern effectively.

Non-Partisan

The United States is not one-size-fits-all. WCF supports women candidates of all parties who have the goods to work across party lines and the guts to work for everyone their office serves.

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