United States, EnglishPolitics Progressive

WomenCount is a non-profit political organization that gives women of all generations and backgrounds from around the United States a powerful voice in the political process. We want to bring to light women candidates from across the country and help inspire more women to run for office and bring the number of women holding political office at every level to an all-time high. Our other mission is to help enact a Presidential Commission on Women. We currently have legislation in the House thanks to Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Ca). We are looking for all women to join the cause and help ensure that this legislation passes and the Commission becomes a reality, creating a new foundation for the next generation of women.
