The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed deep inequities in our society. Women, especially women of color, are negatively and disproportionately impacted. According to a health study, 70 percent of women ages 18-29 and 55 percent of women of all ages have reported mental health challenges due to pandemic-related worry or stress. The lack of access to quality healthcare, job and economic security, childcare and other family support services, are major barriers many women face today.

We can make real changes by raising our voices and exercising our right to vote. Join our W Challenge community and expand our representation today!
