Welcome from the DWC Leadership
Thanks to the tireless work of women across the United States, we have achieved a Democratic White House and our first woman Vice President Kamala Harris, alongside a Democratic House majority led by Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who became the first woman Speaker of the House in 2007. Together with a Democratic Senate, we will fight for economic opportunity, affordable health care, including reproductive health care, and freedom from violence and discrimination.
The 117th Congress is the most diverse Congress in history. Led by our Co-Chairs Congresswomen Jackie Speier, Lois Frankel, and Brenda Lawrence, Vice Chairs Congresswomen Veronica Escobar and Sylvia Garcia, and Freshman Representative Carolyn Bourdeaux, the Democratic Women’s Caucus represents women from all corners of the country. Our Members serve on every Committee in the House of Representatives with many in leadership roles to advance issues affecting all women, girls, and families and achieve equity for BIPOC women and women belonging to historically marginalized communities. In this 117th Congress, we are excited to work together around the common theme that when women have access to the tools they need to succeed, their communities and the world are more peaceful and prosperous.
