When we invest in women and girls, we build stronger, more resilient, and more just communities.

Research from around the world has demonstrated this time and again. Yet, even here in New York City, we have not done enough to attain gender parity in leadership, root out sexism and sexual violence, and elevate the priorities of women and girls.

On the heels of a pandemic that has disproportionately harmed women and communities of color and kicked more women out of the workforce than ever before, we must elect leaders who are ready to remake our city with the know-how and vision to elevate women and level the playing field for everyone.  

There’s a huge field of candidates and extremely high stakes. We’re here to help you sift through the difficult issues, understand the distinctions between candidates, and ask the tough questions that matter most to the future of our city’s women and girls.

As a city and nation, we are finally turning a corner and have a huge opportunity to transform our city’s future. Let’s ensure that our future leaders will be putting women front & center!
