Women are an important force in America who have, for too long, been undervalued and underrepresented in political leadership and policy making.
Our multi-decade march into the American workforce, business ownership, household leadership and consumer spending has elevated women into true leadership of the American economy. And now, we are also The Majority Vote.
However, even with our sizeable contributions to and influence on the American economy, we recognize there is much left to do to support women’s economic opportunities, independence, security, values and family well-being.
The purpose of this report is to highlight the contributions of women to America, outline our current economic condition and state clearly the types of federal budget and policies that are vital to support Women’s Economic Priorities.
The new role for women’s economic and political leadership has begun as we focus or influence, detail specifically our contributions to America, our views and needs and strongly assert our influence through aligning our votes with those who support us. We call upon America’s political leaders to answer our call.
We are students, workers, mothers, business owners, retirees, consumers and The Majority Vote.
We are the New American Leadership.
