3 Major Activists Launch New Group To Get Women Involved In Politics

This summer, Supermajority plans to launch a listening tour, traveling around the country and learning about issues that matter to women. They will use this information to compile a “new deal” for women that will serve as the backbone for the group’s advocacy. The organization plans to engage and mobilize 2 million women, who will then reach millions more. Some of the issues mentioned in the initial press release that they plan to address include everything “from unequal pay, to staggering child care costs, rising maternal mortality, no family leave, and a government that continues to fail women.” But, the activists say, these issues are still often dismissed as “women’s issues” despite the fact that they have national importance.
