How is it possible that the U.S. ranks so low – 84th in the world – in women’s political representation? Why is it that only 4% of Fortune 500 companies have woman CEOs? If we want to see concrete changes to policies that impact women – such as innovative workplaces, affordable child care, paid parental leave, access to reproductive rights – then we need more women in positions of power. That’s why the NOW-NYC PAC puts electing pro-choice and pro-women candidates and getting strong, passionate women into boardrooms at the top of its agenda. NOW-NYC also delivers a number of programs that foster women’s individual growth and leadership skills.
