50/50 by 2020 PAC Aims to Elect more Women to Congress

100 years is long enough to wait.

Estero, FL— October 14, 2018 — A new Political Action Committee has launched to help elect more women to Congress with a goal of gender equality in government. 

“50/50 by 2020 PAC launched in response to overwhelming frustration from recent political events that demonstrated that there are simply not enough women’s voices heard in the halls of Congress,” noted Board of Directors Chair Kelly Werder.  “Rather than continue to feel this frustration, a group of friends and I decided to do something about it.”

Positive Action leads to Optimism

With the large increase of women running for election in this MidTerm cycle, and with so many of those races in dead heats, 50/50 by 2020 knew that even with a short time frame and minimal funds, they could make a difference.  “Our goal is two years down the road, but we knew if we moved quickly, we could have an impact on November 6,” said Werder.

Pan-Partisan and seeking to help ALL women

50/50 by 2020 is supporting all women running for Congress via social media posts and support.  They are also endorsing and spotlighting selected candidates that meet their “Ideal Candidate” profile.  Werder noted, “We truly feel that if we can increase the representation of women in Congress, we can change the conversation and tone, electing leaders who will put party aside, reach across the aisle and actually get something done!”  To learn more, readers are encouraged to visit:
