Forming Local Women's Caucus
There are number of reasons a local Woman's Caucus (WC) can be beneficial to your country or local chapter. A local chapter
- enables you to engage with your WC members more effectively and encourage greater involvement in your local activities
- provides your local membership an outlet to shape conversations that begin at the global level and shape them into issues relevant in your local community
- provide leadership opportunities for your members.

VICTORY FOR AMERICA
Congratulations to our President and Vice President Elect!
"A new day has come to America and the world. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have won the White House, and democracy will prevail!
Joe Biden will be a president for all America, healing the divisions that have so fragmented the country. He is a thoughtful statesman, and an experienced legislator and leader, but above all he is a truly empathetic and kind person.
We are thrilled to have elected Kamala Harris as Vice President. A groundbreaking leader, her legal and senatorial careers have more than demonstrated her keen intelligence, progressive values, and ability to build coalitions. She will be a role model for generations.
Thank you to all of our voters and volunteers for your efforts! We have risen to the challenge of our time, and our votes have been the margin of victory in this historic win.
We look forward to working with the 117th Congress and Biden administration to bring our voices to the table in the coming months."

Jeffrey Cheng published Democrats Abroad Women's Caucus statement on litmus test in News 2017-08-04 12:36:25 -0400
The Women's Caucus of Democrats Abroad wishes to highlight and reaffirm the statement made in the 2016 Democrats Abroad Platform that unequivocally endorsed :
" ….the right of women in the U.S. to bear children, practice birth control, and obtain safe, legal abortions regardless of economic, religious or racial status."
Additionally we want to reiterate that:
"We believe that a decision to terminate a pregnancy is a private matter outside the scope of government intervention. We further believe that all women should have unfettered, free access to quality information from doctors and others regarding reproductive choices."
The statements in the 2016 Democrats Abroad platform mirror the 2016 Democratic platform that stated that the Democratic Party believes “unequivocally” that “every woman should have access to quality reproductive health care services, including safe and legal abortion.”
Democrats and the politicians who represent us do not have to believe that abortion is right for them or their family, but we urge them to respect and uphold the right of each American woman to make that decision for herself.
LET’S REMEMBER and RESPECT our Democratic core values: equality, fairness, inclusivity, respect for human rights and dignity of all Americans- which includes the belief that every woman has the right to choose for herself whether or not to have an abortion.
