The Top Presidential Candidates Told Us Where They Stand On The Issues That Matter Most To Women


Women are the majority of voters in the country. We’re also the majority of people who donate to political campaigns and the majority of the workforce. So why haven’t the candidates spent more time talking about the issues that affect us? 

We set out to get answers to the questions that aren’t being asked on the debate stage. Issues like equal pay, the rollback of women’s reproductive rights, and sexual assault and violence. 

Women have proven that we take our right to vote seriously — in years past and in the primary season so far: We were 58% of voters in the Iowa primary, 57% of voters in the New Hampshire primary, and 53% in the Nevada primary. Now, just a week before Super Tuesday, during which more than a third of all delegates will be allocated, women have the power to turn out in record numbers and play a pivotal role in picking the candidate who can win in November.

At Supermajority, we want to make sure you have the information and tools you need to help pick the candidate you think is right for you and your family, and mobilize other women to do the same. So last week we crisscrossed the country and caught up with the top six candidates — backstage before rallies, at campaign offices and in hotel rooms — and gave them a chance to answer the same questions about their records and their plans for improving women’s lives. We also threw some more fun and personal questions into the mix to help us get to know the candidates a bit better.

Today, we released the videos of these brief chats in partnership with Refinery29, the leading media and entertainment destination focused on women, so you can hear directly from the candidates what they had to say. We hope you’ll watch these videos and share them with the women you know to encourage them to learn more and vote in this primary.
