THE FUTURE IS FEMALE
A Healthy Hive Needs Resources, and You Can Make a Difference.
Participation = Representation
Here’s what we know: Politically, the more we engage, the more we achieve. Research shows a clear correlation between American women’s political giving and their representation in elected office. But the research also shows that women lag drastically behind men in political giving. In 2010, women made up just 26% of the political contributions to national candidates, PACs, and party committees, according to She Should Run and the Center for Responsive Politics. We need to change that.
We must use our collective influence—our voices, actions, and dollars—to help more women achieve leadership positions. Your support for The Matriots encourages a healthy balance of power in Ohio. And when we have that, we’re on the path to healthy earnings, families, and communities.
Changing the Conversation
By donating, you can directly help our mission to elect Ohio women and leverage our collective power to secure women’s representation at all levels of state and local government.
While training in public policy and candidate-readiness exists in Ohio, support in the form of endorsement, money, votes and influence is lacking. Your donation can help ensure that women have equal opportunities, access, rights, and responsibilities.
Flipping the Script
When there is political leadership and participation by all women, good government follows. A growing body of evidence indicates that women’s political participation results in women’s increased economic independence, as well as opportunities to push for legislation that emphasizes the value of women’s human, civil, and reproductive rights.
With the financial contribution from the Matriots PAC, we were able to increase the number of mailers that were sent for the primary win. The contribution in the general election helped to finance media ads.
