2018 Women in Leadership Forum – Women in Politics
Since the 2016 election, more than 26,000 women have reached out or have launched a campaign to run for a political position. It is not just candidates. Experienced female political operatives are striking out on their own, creating new organizations independent from the party apparatus to raise money, marshal volunteers and assist candidates with everything from fundraising to figuring out how to balance childcare with campaigns. However, their goals are bigger and broader than simply shifting the balance of power in our Country. They are hoping that a wave of women pouring into public office will elevate issues that draw support from women in both parties and reshape how women think about their role in American politics.
