U.S. Women’s Chamber of Commerce Calls on Women Voters to Unite to Protect and Advance Our Future as Political and Economic Leaders

“In the wake of this election, the U.S. Women’s Chamber of Commerce urges women across America to unite to protect and advance our future as political and economic leaders,” declares Margot Dorfman, CEO of the U.S. Women’s Chamber of Commerce.

“The record gender gap in the 2016 presidential election – women supported Clinton over Trump by 54% to 42% – is the widest in exit polls dating back to 1972,” notes Dorfman. “And still our votes were not enough to elect the presidential candidate we knew would fight for our opportunities, our families and our rights. We cannot respond to this defeat with despondent complacency; rather, we must unite and fight for our futures. We’ve come too far to let this bump in the road turn us back from our rightful place as political and economic leaders,” concludes Dorfman.

We encourage women to join your U.S. Women’s Chamber of Commerce today. We must organize and focus our influence, articulate our needs and value to America, be active as leaders and compel those who are in leadership to reject misogyny and respect the role of women in our society.

The U.S. Women’s Chamber of Commerce will continue to articulate, educate and fight for women’s economic priorities (http://uswcc.org/priorities). Women are an important economic force in America who have, for too long, been undervalued and underrepresented in political leadership and policy making. For more than two decades, women have lead the growth in America's Gross Domestic Product, driven the creation of new businesses and jobs, moved into leadership roles providing financially for our children and families.

But, even with our sizable contributions to the American economy, this election makes clear: there is much left to do to support our leadership and economic opportunities, independence, security, values and family well-being.

U.S. Women ‘s Chamber of Commerce leaders encourage women to register for our upcoming policy meetings to be held via webcast and phone in and step up now to be part of our unified force for the future.

The U.S. Women’s Chamber of Commerce unifies the collective strength of women in the U.S. economy. Using a platform of influence, innovation, and opportunity, the U.S. Women’s Chamber of Commerce works with and for its members to grow successful businesses and careers.
