The Women's Debate
The Women's Debate Nonpartisan Campaign to Elevate Women's Issues
almost 3 years United States Story
Women's issues deserve a live presidential debate. Let's make it happen.

Women represent more than half the population and turn out to vote more than men, yet women’s issues have received little attention during this presidential election cycle. It's time for our presidential candidates to go on record about issues that affect women.


@TheWomensDebate

Womensdebate.org is a collective of concerned citizens who are calling upon all political candidates to commit to a live presidential debate focused exclusively on issues affecting American women and girls, namely:

  • Elimination of barriers that prevent equal participation in the economy
  • Access to quality, affordable health care opportunities for all
  • Safe and just recourse when confronted with violence and sexual exploitation

#WhyWomensDebate

  • The U.S. is only industrialized country that doesn't offer paid maternity leave1
  • 1 in 3 American women either live in or are on the brink of poverty2
  • 70% of the nation’s poor are women and children3
  • Women are 35% more likely than men to be poor, with single mothers facing the highest risk4
  • 1 in 4 women under 30 received threats of physical violence via online sexual harassment5
  • From 1995-2013, women aged 18-24 accounted for the highest percentage of sexual assault victims6
  • In a 2006 report, National Institute of Child Health and Human Development found that only 10% of American day care centers offer high quality care. The majority of the facilities received ratings of “fair” or “poor”7
