The Massachusetts Women’s Political Caucus is a nonpartisan organization committed to increasing the number of women elected to public office and appointed to public policy positions.
We seek to civically engage women of all ages in the political process through events, programming, and workshops. Caucus members include a diverse group of women that include the political, healthcare, biotech, academic, business, corporate, and non-profit communities. The MWPC offers programs that strive to increase the interest of women in the political process and helps them to be successful in the political arena.
