If confronted by a community of the nation’s most powerful women championing for change on a number of important issues currently impacting the United States, would you listen?
This is the intention behind the nation’s latest political movement opposing a number of concerning issues prevalent in Trump’s America.
Enter The United State of Women, an advocacy group that will dedicate itself to both recognizing and lobbying for change on a number of issues dividing our nation. A few of the more pressing issues include achieving gender equality, protecting the rights of the LGBTQ community and advocating for gun violence prevention.
While this may sound like a nonviable mission for a single group to tackle on their own, you may reconsider their influence when you witness their star power, which includes former First Lady Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Tina Fey, Meryl Streep, Laverne Cox, Kerry Washington and Tracee Ellis Ross.
But aside from the overwhelming amount of celebrity support, other high status figures have joined the political troupe as well. Some of these formidable females include Cecile Richards, President of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America; Indra Nooyi, Chairman and CEO of PepsiCo; and Dr. Jen Welter, the first female coach in the NFL.
Though the movement is relatively fresh, the United State of Women has already amassed a considerable online audience of over 186,000 supporters on Facebook and 24,000 on Twitter. And if it matters to you, its swagis pretty great, too.
If you wish to learn more about the issues its championing, the website has done a fantastic job displaying which issues matter, why they matter and what you can do to influence change.
Considering this is a tepid time where the United States is anything but united, there is no better time for women to take a stand. We support them every step of the way.
