When it comes to women in legislative office, the US ranks mind-bogglingly low: 90th in the world...  and the election of 2010 was the first year when Congress LOST women in office. Is it any wonder so much anti-woman legislation has been voted into law this term?

We need to bring more progressive, pro-choice women into office, on local and state levels as well as Federal. Groups like EMILY's List and Women's Campaign Fund are doing the hard work of identifying candidates, training and seeding their campaigns with funding -- but it's not enough.

Today, MOMocrats launches its 2012 version of Run, Mama Run: an online tool that will give users the ability to easily find and support women candidates all over the country. California Assembly candidate Torie Osborn joins Cynematic, Karoli and Donna Schwartz Mills.
