Join NWPC’s BAND of Women in 2016 & Support our 45th Anniversary by giving $45!
On July 10, 1971, 320 women from all over the United States met in Washington, D.C. to establish the National Women’s Political Caucus. The founders included Bella Abzug, Shirley Chisholm, Betty Friedan, Mildred McWilliams Jeffrey, and Gloria Steinem, among others. During the founding ceremonies, Steinem delivered an Address to the Women of America, which would become one of the era’s most memorable speeches:
“This is no simple reform. It really is a revolution. Sex and race, because they are easy, visible differences, have been the primary ways of organizing human beings into superior and inferior groups, and into the cheap labor on which this system still depends. We are talking about a society in which there will be no roles other than those chosen, or those earned. We are really talking about humanism,” (Steinem, 1971).
As we prepare to elect the 45th President of the United States, Hillary Rodham Clinton, we are reminded that our struggle continues and of Gloria’s iconic words. Hillary expresses today, in her own words “human rights are women’s rights and women’s rights are human rights.” We know that when Hillary is elected our next President, she will continue on the path of ensuring equality for all under the law, BUT she will need a strong U.S. Senate and House of Representatives to support her! And we intend for that to include as many women elected as possible.
That’s why I am asking you to dig just a little deeper this election season and in honor of our 45th anniversary and our 45th President by donating $45.00 to our Parity PAC! Every progressive woman elected to the House and Senate moves us forward and helps our next President move her vision forward.
PLEASE donate today by filling out the Parity PAC form below!

“With passion and courage, women have taught us that when we band together to advocate for our highest ideals, we can advance our common well-being and strengthen the fabric of our nation.” President Barack Obama
Women make many sacrifices to run for office and the challenge to raise money can be staggering. That’s why it’s important for us to not only to endorse these qualified women, but to assist monetarily to help advance their campaigns. 2016 looks to be a great year for women running and we want to be out front with our support for our endorsed candidates.
To further our cause, NWPC has launched a newly named Parity PAC initiative. Every dollar donated will go to help our endorsed candidates with their campaign. We invite you to donate today!
