Current State – Post 2018 Election

2018 was a record-setting year for women in politics. We marched. We ran. We donated our time and money in unprecedented numbers.

Women drove the blue wave in 2018 and now women are not only set to take over key leadership positions in the next Congress – for the first time ever, women now lead all 4 of the Democratic campaign committees responsible for House, Senate, gubernatorial, and state legislative races (the DCCC, DSCC, DGA and DLCC respectively).

Federal

Come January 2019 women will makeup nearly 24% of Congress. This will include 28 freshmen Democratic women. In total, 24 women Senators and 103 Congresswomen are set to serve in the 116th Congress.

This represents get strides, however we still have a long way to go to reach parity.

California

California has finally elected its first woman Lt. Governor.

As happened across the country, California women ran and won in record numbers and we now represent nearly 31% of our state legislature, including 14/40 senators and 23/80 assembly members.

Governors

There will be 6 Democratic women governors (and 9 overall) in 2019.

We believe in the power of the purse. Men have historically donated to political candidates in greater numbers and in higher amounts than women. While we are over half the population we account for less than a third of all candidate donations. In order to increase our representation, we need to do a better job funding women candidates.

The Women’s Political Committee (WPC) is the oldest Political Action Committee in the United States formed solely to endorse and fund women candidates seeking elected office.

The WPC collectively, and all of our members individually, are passionately committed to using our voices and resources to elect women candidates at all levels of government who support reproductive rights, pay equity, and human and civil rights.
