Our mission is to find ways to bring together individual Democratic women and existing women’s organizations in Arizona to increase the synergy among them so that women can have a real voice in decisions affecting the future of Arizona.
One of our goals is to encourage women to get involved in all aspects of the political process in Arizona and to run for elected office. As elected officials, women can both initiate and shape policy to further our Democratic values.
We regard the equal representation of women in Arizona government, in state offices, in the state legislature, in county offices, on city councils and on school boards, as a fundamental question of fairness for women in terms of their access to Arizona’s democratic institutions.
In today’s political arena, women make up more than fifty percent of the voting population. Women have become one of the nation’s most vocal, strongest and reliable constituencies. Whether it is grass roots organizing, leading a cause or spearheading a movement, women are always in the forefront. The influence a large female constituency can have on elected representatives is often underestimated. All elected officials realize they depend on their female constituency to campaign and keep them in office. For this reason, they must always consider the opinions and perspectives of women. A well-organized group of women, working together for a common cause can make a huge difference in the outcome of an issue.
