American Women is a 501(c)(4) organization affiliated with EMILY’s List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, which has been doing research about the needs and views of women for nearly twenty years.
“In the 2012 election, women sent a message by rejecting politicians who supported anti-women policies that would have rolled back the clock on their rights,” said Stephanie Schriock, President of American Women. “Now it’s time to amplify the voices of women across the nation and work to make sure women are heard in Washington and backed up with policies that make their lives just a little bit easier.”
American Women will provide access to research and work collaboratively, our partners will use research driven and tested messaging to educate, inform and influence state and elected leaders and public policy advocates to drive legislative agendas that improve the lives of women and families.
“American Women’s initial research showed that a majority of women feel their lives and those of their families have become harder in the last couple of years and that many are struggling to balance work and family,” said pollster Diane Feldman of The Feldman Group. “It’s no wonder women are looking for proactive solutions to help them meet the challenges they face.”
“Women aren’t asking for special treatment, but they want to level the playing field and make it a little easier to make ends meet,” said pollster Lisa Grove of Anzalone Liszt Grove Research. “There is clear demand for family-friendly policies like flexible work hours, paid leave and equal pay and women are looking to their leaders in Washington to stand up and put families first.”
American Women will work with organizations and leaders who share our goal to amplify women’s voices in the policy discussion.
