College Women's Political Caucus at UT

First meeting of the semester!

College Women's Caucus at UT

The College Women's Caucus is a new national feminist organization designed to increasing political engagement among college-aged women, both on campuses and within their local communities.  It is a part of the National Women's Political Caucus, a multipartisan, multicultural grassroots organization dedicated to increasing women's participation in the political field and creating a political power base designed to achieve equality for all women.  

The CWC at UT is the first chapter in the entire nation, which means YOU have a chance to shape the direction of this new national organization!  Just a few of the things we will be doing this next year include:
Working on Student Government campaigns as well as local political campaigns
Hosting training sessions and forums open to all students on various political topics and on issues of concern to college women
Inviting successful women politicians to come share about their experiences in the political realm
Working with middle school and high school girls to give them the leadership skills and belief in themselves to be leaders later in life
Traveling to the National Women's Political Caucus convention next summer
Our first meeting is this Thursday, 9/9 at 8pm in PAR 101.
