About USOW

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 women, gender nonconforming people, and allies who believe in full gender equity and want to work collectively to achieve it.

We strive to build and strengthen coalitions at all levels and connect our audiences to new partners and actions in order to enact meaningful change and create a more intersectional, united state of women.

Our History

Born out of the Obama Administration’s White House Council on Women and Girls, USOW holds a unique position within the gender equity movement. We sit at the uncommon intersection of policy, community engagement, culture change, and leadership development. Since 2016, we’ve served as a go-to platform for partners, stakeholders, and our community to address issues facing women and other marginalized genders.
