Hide Profile

The National Women's Political Caucus was formed in 1971 as a multiparty organization seeking to gain an equal voice and place for women in the political process at the local, state and national levels. The caucus and its state affiliates support women candidates for elective and appointive offices and seek to ensure that women hold policy-making positions in political parties. They have lobbied in state legislatures for the Equal Rights Amendment, women's reproductive rights, and other measures to promote women's equality.
