Women Effect Fund

The Women Effect Fund (WEF) connects donors and doers to build advocacy campaigns for gender equity and women’s economic justice, issues with particular resonance in 2018. Through civic engagement initiatives that provide data-driven testing of field strategies, WEF utilizes persuasion, mobilization, and the growth of a volunteer and activist base to advance a family care agenda, including paid sick leave, which has now been enacted in 10 states and 30 cities. WEF will push forward to build civic engagement and lift women’s voices and leadership to win on economic legislative and policy issues, with a particular focus on New Hampshire and Virginia.
