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?
