Women's Equality

The Green Party makes a strong and urgent call for U.S. passage of CEDAW, the Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women, which was adopted in 1979 by the UN General Assembly and ratified by 173 countries. It is also known as the Women's Convention, the Women's Bill of Rights, and an International Bill of Rights for Women. The United States is one of a very few countries and the only industrialized nation that has not ratified it.

Women's Equality is an important part of our platform.

The National Women's Caucus (NWC) is sponsoring a national lobby in DC in April. Details can be found at Greens vs. Greed and here.



This past Saturday was historic. Hundreds of thousands of women (and men, too) descended on our nation’s capitol for the largest inaugural protest in U.S. history, the Women’s March on Washington D.C.

The peaceful marches happened in cities all over the nation. From Boston and Philadelphia to San Francisco and Los Angeles, in large cities and small, hundreds of thousands of people marched in solidarity, for women’s rights and women’s freedom.

The DC Statehood Green Party in conjunction with the National Green Party of the United States invite fellow Statehood Greens, Greens, and our political and community allies to join us as we demonstrate our solidarity and our resolve to resist hatred, corporate plundering of our communities, and tyranny characterized by the incoming administration. Bring your songs, puppets, banners, shirts, hats, buttons and other items to show your solidarity!!!!

Come join fellow Greens and advocates for political transformation on Jan. 20 and 21 at Occupy Inauguration - the Washington DC protest addressing the real problem: the bipartisan meltdown that Trump represents! AND the Women's March in Washington, DC. Occupy Inauguration is a broad-based collaboration among social justice organizations including the US Green Party, Occupy Wall Street, Socialist Alternative, Indigenous Environmental Network, Code Pink, Popular Resistance, the Native Organizers Alliance, Veterans for Peace, Liberty Tree, Move to Amend, Roots Action, Disabled Americans for Change and many more.

Empathy, Appreciation, and a Call to Action

I am writing to share my thoughts with you as we grieve together this morning after Donald Trump's election.
