Happy New Year!
What word do you use to describe 2020? Yup. It was all that and more. Let’s break down our favorite moments and lessons learned – and we invite you to share yours with us below.
We head into 2021 clear-eyed about the work ahead, and with a hopeful heart. 2020 was a challenging year for our nation and our communities, but it has never been more obvious that #5050x2028 is an urgent goal. It meets this critical moment and sets us up for a different – a better – future for this generation and the next.
Thank you for helping move us in such significant ways so much closer to #5050x2028. We’ll have all sorts of adventures in the new year, but first, read on to celebrate and reflect on what we’ve done together this year.

In November, 50/50 leadership reached our highest office with the election of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. WCF believes a 50/50 team will bring outstanding insight to the table as our nation addresses challenges from the pandemic to culture change to economic endurance and recovery.
Americans with a wide range of ideas, from sea to shining sea, showed up and got it done on every level of elected government. A record-breaking number of women and, specifically, Republican women, were elected to Congress. Your neighbors and friends stepped up to run for local office and had an incredible impact on your community. Poll workers around the nation are STILL working hard to count every vote. You, the voter, made your voice heard.
It’s all worth celebrating. Take a lap around the living room and give it your best moves. Then, let’s get back to work – because we have a lot to do. Read on…

As a historic election cycle comes to a close, we are grateful to all the Americans who stepped up to make their communities a better place, and to all the barrier-breakers who showed us what leadership can and should look like.
From the voters and the poll watchers to the marchers and the courageous people who keep the conversation going across the aisle no matter how tough it gets, all the way up to one big 50/50 ticket, it’s everyday women and men – you! – who influence the forward vision of this nation!
Now, let’s get out and vote! And if you’re one of the millions of Americans who already cast their ballot, read on to check out what else caught our eye this month…

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away this month. She was the second female Supreme Court Justice in our nation’s history and a trailblazer in her field. What does her legacy mean to you?
Her words ring crystal clear today: “Women belong in all places where decisions are being made.”
It’s just common sense. Women are more than 50% of the population. They deserve to have a seat at the table at every level of elected government where decisions are made about YOUR life. That’s the spirit of #5050x2028.
Read on to see what else caught our attention this month...

Last month, we took a little time to CELEBRATE! August marked the historic centennial of the 19th Amendment AND Women’s Equality Day! We’re doing a little dance celebrating 100 years of women’s right to vote – but we can’t forget that it’s been less than 60 years since states could no longer keep that right from Black women.
We’re doubling down on our work to make good on the promise to guarantee women’s right to participate in elected office – and make it a normal expectation for women and men to work in roughly equal numbers at all levels of elected government! Let’s finish the job the 19th Amendment started and get to #5050x2028!
In this newsletter, we celebrate how far we’ve come and commit to the work ahead. No time to lose! Ready? Let’s get started!

Welcome to your mid-summer newsletter from Women’s Campaign Fund!
Since we last talked, men and women across the nation continue to see bold crisis management and courageous responses to historic challenges from women elected leaders. Their decisive leadership gives us just a peek at what a future with women and men in roughly equal numbers at all levels of government will look like.
That’s the beauty of this pivotal moment: you get to move forward with clear intention, through all the uncertainty and upheaval, maintaining your vision of that future, the one you want and deserve.
In this newsletter, we explore ways to continue building the diversity of women running for office, highlighting the voices of Black women and other women of color – part of the promise of WCF’s #5050x2028 mission! Why wait to bring the strength of a wide range of experiences to the table?
What can you do to spark a conversation about these ideas in your home and neighborhood?
