"Women Win on Election Night 2017"
Statement by NOW President Toni Van Pelt
November 7, 2017
Feminists swept battleground states and districts this election night–proving just how strong TheResistance can be.
We’re thrilled that Virginia and New Jersey will be led by Ralph Northam and Phil Murphy–candidates who will champion feminist policies as governors. Virginia voters elected progressives up and down the ballot, and we are especially proud to congratulate NOW leader Hala Ayala on her election to the Virginia House of Delegates.
Tonight’s message is clear: the time to elect feminists is NOW! NOW members and grassroots activists rolled up their sleeves, and got out the vote for the candidates who care about women’s rights–and their hard work paid off.
This is just a taste of what’s to come. We know that NOW activists will keep working hard, and keep winning–on November 6, 2018 and beyond.
