Current State – Going Into 2020

2020 is our year to ensure Women take the lead in restoring our democracy. 2018 was a record-setting year for Women, taking back the House, and we aim to do the same and more in 2020.

We drove the Blue Wave and more women than ever are once again running across the country.  Women also lead all 4 of the Democratic Campaign Committees for House, Senate, Gubernatorial and State legislative seats.

Federal

Women make up nearly 24% of Congress with 24 Women Senators and 103 Congresswomen now serving in the 116th Congress.  We made great strides in 2018 but we have a long way to go to reach parity.  2020 is our chance to significantly increase our numbers with a record number of women running for office.

California

California Women ran and won in record numbers in 2018 and now represent nearly 31% of our state legislature but that is not good enough!  2020 gives us yet another opportunity to increase women’s representation in state and local government.

Governors

Women hold 9 Governor seats but that is not enough.,  It is imperative for Women to occupy more Governor seats as they wield significant power over issues such as abortion and gerrymandering.  The same goes for State legislatures.

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.
