Wendy Cartwright is one of the founders and President & Co-Chair of We Are Woman. We Are Woman was formed in 2012 as a response to the “War on Women”. WAW organized a rally in 2012 and 2014 at the Capitol in support of women’s rights and voting rights. We Are Woman’s mission is ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment, working with other coalitions in support of women’s issues such as equal pay, domestic abuse, abortion rights and educating citizens on the importance of voting. Women are not a special interest group and voting is a right. Wendy has gained her inspiration from women like Rosa Parks and Hillary Clinton. She believes strongly that no one should be afraid to stand up for his or her rights and beliefs. It is our responsibility to win this war on women and voting for those who came before us, and the next generation.
