Current State – 2018

Women make up more than half of the population and we believe that should be reflected in the number of women holding elected office.  WPC is composed of women members and supports women candidates only.

Federal

In 2018, Congress finally reached 20%. We have a long way to go to reach parity.

California

  • California ranks 32nd in its percentage of women in the state legislature with 9/40 senators and 18/80 assembly members.*  (*Center for American Women and Politics, Rutgers University)
  • California has never had a women Governor or Lt. Governor

Governors

There are only 2 Democratic women governors (and 6 overall)

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.

2018 will be a record-setting year for women running for office.

Now more than ever is the time to engage politically, 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.
