WHAT WE DO
California Women’s List is a Political Action Committee dedicated to fundraising for, supporting, and electing
pro-choice, Democratic women to office in California. We are building a future of equal representation for women in our state government. We are committed to giving our endorsed candidates financial support and assistance as they continue to fundraise and win in California. To support our mission of equal representation in California's state government, we will work to empower and organize a robust network of donors who are actively engaged in fundraising and supporting pro-choice, Democratic, female candidates for office in California.
At the end of 2019, California ranked 18th among the states for proportion of women elected in the state legislature.
Currently only 31.7% of our state legislature is female, with 14 women Senators and 24 women Assemblymembers representing us in Sacramento.
California Women’s List is committed to working to elect more women to office in California to move towards gender parity in Sacramento while building a strong pipeline of female leaders.
California Women's List remains vigilant in the fight for equality. We are working towards making every space inclusive — including state and local legislative bodies.
CWL will work to elect candidates who will represent their communities and fight for issues that impact women and families across the state.
We will listen to and celebrate all cultures and identities, acknowledging and learning from the histories of communities of color, the LGBTQ+ movement, and more.
