We understand the importance of supporting women at the earliest stages of their race, when that support is most needed.
At All Levels
We support women leaders at all levels of government - and we do mean all. From school board to Congress, women are needed at all levels to make a positive difference in their communities.
We support women leaders on both sides of the aisle who support women.
We are not bound by party politics or conventional thinking. We are uncompromising in our vision of more women in government and are willing to challenge the status quo to achieve it.
We want a truly representative government that reflects the diversity of our country, including women of color, LGBT women, and young women.

WCF President/CEO Sam Bennett’s Statement on the West Virginia Gubernatorial Democratic Primary Outcome
(WASHINGTON, DC) – “WCF-endorsed candidate and current West Virginia Secretary of State Natalie Tennant was the only woman running in West Virginia’s Democratic Gubernatorial Primary. Five men were running against her. While Natalie did not win her primary on May 14th, she led a remarkable campaign that made me – and the entire WCF community – proud to support her. I am confident Natalie will continue to serve West Virginians as their Secretary of State, and sincerely hope WCF has the opportunity to support Natalie in her political career again.”
The Women’s Campaign Forum is the country’s only national, non-partisan organization dedicated to advancing the political participation and leadership of women who support reproductive health choices for all.
