A new CWA initiative, CWA Women for Political Power, has hit the ground running, with CWA activists mobilizing women throughout the union.

District 4 Vice President Linda Hinton, who chairs CWA’s Legislative and Political Committee, is leading the effort. Members of CWA’s National Women’s Committee also will mobilize support for the working women’s agenda and for Secretary Clinton.

CWA women are a driving force behind the political revolution in this country. By electing labor-friendly candidates into office, CWA women can make sure their issues get addressed.

Women make up a large percentage of CWA members and retirees, especially in the critical states of Ohio, Pennsylvania, Florida, California, and New Jersey, and will play a major role in these elections.
