Our Global Women's Caucus is helping Americans around the world become real activists in the struggle for women’s rights no matter where they are, no matter how small or large their numbers -- a committee of one or one hundred!

There is no "one-size-fits-all" level of involvement.  What our individual sections do depends very much on their size. Here are just a few examples:

Communications & Outreach

Help reach new caucus members and share stories of women living abroad. This working group curates our caucus’s online presence (web, social media, email) and promotes events, activities, and issues.
