For decades AAUW members across Washington State have examined and taken positions on the fundamental issues of the day. Basic to all of AAUW-WA’s public policy efforts is the understanding that true equity requires women’s empowerment as individuals and structural support for their full participation as responsible members of their communities.
Democratic political processes are crucial to women’s empowerment in public and private life. For that reason, we support strong protection for the right to vote and meaningful campaign finance reforms. These will elevate the voices of all citizens and therefore promote a government that represents the popular will and general interest more fully.
