The role of Women in Leadership (WIL) today, as it was in 1993, is to elect dynamic women who are dedicated to keeping access to full reproductive rights. In 1993, we truly believed that by 2017, it would be more politically acceptable for a politician to support reproduction rights, education and healthcare. But we were wrong.

The right of a woman to choose whether to bear a child has become even more fragile in the past 20 years. Roe v Wade was the settled law of the land and the anti-choice minority, although noisy, had won no major victories. Today, the protections set forth in Roe v Wade are close to annihilation and the anti-choice minority is swaggering with confidence in the belief that it will outlaw or severely restrict a woman’s rights to control her own reproductive life.

WIL is needed now more than ever. The candidates we support will improve the lives of women -- locally, statewide and nationally. Please join us as we continue to fight together for women’s reproductive freedom!

Who We Are

Women In Leadership is a bi-partisan Political Action Committee formed in 1993 for the purpose of electing women candidates to local, regional and state-wide office who are dedicated to keeping access to full reproductive rights. We provide funds to candidates who believe that ensuring access to reproductive education and healthcare is essential to safeguarding rights for all women.

Our Mission

  • To provide early campaign funds directly to women candidates who share WIL’s commitment to reproductive choice and freedom.
  • To provide a forum for these candidates to reach out to potential supporters through luncheons, forums and other WIL sponsored events.
