Electing women to Congress

Elect Democratic Women was formed in 2018 by Democratic members of Congress with the purpose of electing more pro-choice Democratic women to Congress and higher office, based on the understanding that democracy is best served by a diverse Congress that reflects the people they represent.

It is the only member-led political action committee dedicated to increasing the number of women in Congress.
