|The mission of the Women's Leadership Forum (WLF) is to raise women's voices and influence by serving as the Democratic Party's centralized hub for activism, information, and fundraising for Democratic women.|
Founded in 1993 by Hillary Clinton, Tipper Gore, and 36 women trailblazers, WLF was established to ensure women have a seat at the table at the DNC and were recognized as a key constituency of the Democratic Party.
What started out primarily as a finance council for women to elevate their voices by raising funds, now exists as a way to amplify women’s voices within the party.
The WLF works to close the gender gap as a fundraising force, with women now accounting for 60% of all funds donated to the DNC. In turn, they provide a platform for engaging women at the grassroots, policy and national leadership levels.
Throughout each cycle, the WLF organizes regional and national events, including policy and platform discussions, trainings, and networking opportunities, as well as regular informational briefs, talking points, and rapid response information.
WLF is led by Director Emma Rosenthal and a Steering Committee including Cynthia Friedman, Virginia McGregor, Regina Montoya, Carol Pensky, Diane Robertson, Diane Robertson and Ursula Terrasi.
