Support Us


Because women’s political equality won’t be achieved in any one election cycle, CAWP is committed to educating and engaging new generations of women public leaders, scholars, and advocates reflecting the racial, ethnic, gender and socio-economic diversity of our nation. Through our groundbreaking research and innovative programs, we are sowing the seeds of change for women’s political leadership. Our team is unwavering in their commitment to women’s political equality, but we can’t do it alone.
