ABOUT USOW

OUR MISSION


The United State of Women is a national organization dedicated to convening, connecting, and amplifying voices in the fight for full gender equity. We are a community for all women, gender nonconforming people, and allies who believe in full gender equity and want to work collectively to achieve it.


We strive to build and strengthen coalitions at all levels, connect partners with new audiences in order to enact meaningful change, and create a more intersectional, united #StateOfWomen. 

OUR HISTORY


Born out of the Obama Administration’s White House Council on Women and Girls, USOW holds a unique position within the gender equity movement. We sit at an uncommon intersection of politics, community engagement, culture change, and leadership development. Since 2016, we’ve served as a go-to platform for partners, stakeholders, and our community to address issues facing women and other marginalized genders.

OUR IMPACT


After 4 years of programming and activations, USOW is excited to continue engaging, educating, and energizing our growing community of activists and advocates.
