Washington, DC – Hillary Clinton’s campaign is launching its “Women for Hillary” grassroots effort this weekend in New Hampshire, and the National Organization for Women is all in.
Hillary Clinton has been a trailblazer for women with an impressive record of public service where she put women’s rights at the forefront. Everywhere Clinton worked she used her voice and power to raise the status and improve the lives of women and girls. Clinton made “women’s rights are human rights” a rallying point throughout the world. As Secretary of State she made women’s rights the core of U.S. foreign policy, including institutionalizing a new and sweeping strategic process recognizing women’s involvement and work on behalf of women internationally. Electing a feminist woman president is not only historic, but would lead to further advances toward equality for all women.
During the two-week rollout of “Women for Hillary” NOW supporters will be attending house parties, coming out to events with Hillary Clinton and her surrogates, and organizing in early states because gender matters in the United States today, and women’s votes will matter in this election more than ever before.
The National Organization for Women is always on the side of making history, and over the next two weeks we’ll be looking forward to the sound of barriers breaking down.
