The United State of Women

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 who identify as women, gender-nonconforming, or allies and believe in full gender equity and want to work collectively to achieve it.

Born out of the Obama Administration’s White House Council on Women and Girls, USOW holds a unique position within the movement. We sit at an uncommon intersection of politics, community engagement, culture change, and leadership development. This profile allows us to serve as a go-to platform for partners, stakeholders, and our community to address issues facing women through an intersectional lens.

Our impact

Through our bi-annual summit, regional Galvanize events, Ambassador program, and online engagement, we strive to build and strengthen coalitions at all levels, connecting communities to each other in order to enact meaningful change and create a more united #StateOfWomen.

With passion and courage, women have taught us that when we band together to advocate for our highest ideals, we can advance our common well-being and strengthen the fabric of our nation.
