PROPOSED POLICY THAT WOMEN
FROM BOTH PARTIES WANT NOW
These bills enjoy bipartisan support among women but have failed to be enacted. Together, we can change that.
We want women to recognize and assert our political power! We have much more in common with each other than with either political party, but we spend so much time focusing on what we disagree on. We believe that to change Washington, we need to lock in the legislation that every woman wants to see enacted.
We’re not against male Members of Congress. We are fierce advocates for any candidate who works to enact legislation that women want and need. We support Members of Congress who in turn support the needs of the women in their districts.
We strongly encourage women to rally behind the bills that would benefit all of us. We need to unite and apply pressure so legislation that has been proposed, but not yet passed, will finally become law. If women harness their political power, we will be unstoppable.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Are we trying to organize women?
Yes. The goal of the campaign is to impact Washington by demonstrating bipartisan support for action on stalled legislation that benefits women and families.
Is the campaign associated with a political party?
No. The very idea behind #IfWomenRanWashington and the broader Women2Women network is to focus on the issues that unite women across party lines. Women2Women management and staff represent both parties.
Does the campaign literally want only women legislators?
No. While we would be happy to see the demographic make-up of Congress better reflect the demographic make-up of the country, we support any legislator who champions legislation that benefits women and families.
How can women run Washington?
We are the majority. We can run Washington through our votes—especially in the primaries—and through our active advocacy.
