      Seattle, WA

The women of the United States of America come from all walks of life and hold all manner of views. We may not agree on everything, but we can agree that women are entitled to equality in every aspect of society, including pay, healthcare, social services, and employment opportunities. This is our commitment to unity.

We, the Women...

...of the United States of America hereby declare our alliance. And in our capacity as allies-in-will to protect our inalienable rights to health, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, we commit to the following tenets:

~ We will remember that more unites us than divides us and will come together on our common ground.

~ We will maintain our alliance even in the face of politics that seek to divide us as people and as women, because we are more than our political parties.

~ We will work together to ensure that all women are equal in every aspect of society, including pay, healthcare, social services, and employment opportunities. 

~ We will educate everyone on women’s rights and empowerment, especially women and girls.

~ We will oppose policies that undermine women’s rights and liberties, as well as all forms of violence against women and girls.

~ We will support policies that benefit all women, regardless of socioeconomic status, lifestyle, or political party.


(We welcome, with gratitude, signatures from men who support women.)

      It sickens me that the advances I've fought for all my life haven't brought us to full equality, yet the right is trying to take away even the few gains we've made.
