Game Changer: Maura Healey

Maura Healey


Maura, as an attorney and LGBT woman, has spent years fighting for justice, equal rights, and expanded opportunity, and she has delivered. In the strong, progressive tradition of the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office, Maura has won victories for Massachusetts families that are felt across the country. Her extensive leadership experience, professionalism, and vision make her uniquely qualified to serve as Massachusetts’ next Attorney General.


Attorney General – Massachusetts – Open Seat. The incumbent, and WCF woman-in-office, Martha Coakley, is running for Governor.


Maura was previously the Chief of the Civil Rights and Public Protection Bureaus of the Massachusetts Attorney General's office.

For seven years, she led a team of 250 lawyers on nationally significant cases, including the first successful challenge to the Defense of Marriage Act.

Maura joined the Attorney General’s Office in 2007 after serving as a litigator in one of Boston’s most prominent law firms, WilmerHale, and as a Special Assistant District Attorney in Middlesex County.

  • ★ 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.
