Women’s Campaign International

Posted October 13th, 2014 at 11:20 am.

Working in emerging democracies and post-conflict regions around the world, Women’s Campaign International advances opportunities for women to actively participate in public advocacy and political processes. Women’s Campaign International was founded in 1998 by Pennsylvania Congresswoman Marjorie Margolies. WCI’s programs help women find their voices by giving them tangible skills in areas such as leadership, public speaking, media relations, grassroots organizing, campaign strategies, voter outreach and mobilization, polling, policy analysis and fundraising. WCI has worked with political leaders, activists, advocacy groups and non-profit partner organizations to ensure that women have a legitimate opportunity to participate in the development of public policy, and that women’s issues are placed on local, national and regional agendas.

Some of the areas they focus on are:

  • Civic Education, Advocacy, and Grassroots Organizing
  • Entrepreneurship and Sustainable Livelihoods: WCI typically works with women who are starting micro, small and medium ventures in an effort to increase their financial sustainability.
  • Peace Building and Conflict Mitigation: WCI works with organizations and professionals in areas of protracted conflict to help transform policies, infrastructure, and environments that are conducive to violence, and help people build sustainable communities.
  • Political Participation, Campaigns and Leadership: WCI provides training for women who wish to run for office and for party leaders. WCI trains candidates to conduct well-organized campaigns and create strategic campaign plans. It also works with party leaders in party block vote electoral systems to ensure that women are high enough on the party list to get elected to office.
