All women should be treated with respect. Fear of being shamed, mocked, or silenced should have no place in the national debate. Join the movement to encourage respectful, diverse, and thoughtful conversations.

What Is
Champion Women?

Champion Women is a movement committed to championing the ideas and amplifying the voices of all women. Too often on social media, in public, and in the news people try to diminish the influence, perspectives, and policy solutions put forth by women by degrading their appearance and delegitimizing their qualifications. Champion Women pushes back and calls out those who objectify, dismiss, or degrade women.

We're in this for the long haul to stop the objectification of women, encourage civil discourse, and push for concrete changes so that all women are treated with dignity and respect. Join us.

Why Now?

The national dialogue has become too negative, degrading, and hostile toward women. Too often people in the public sphere, on social media, and in our everyday lives personally attack women with whom they disagree. By objectifying, mocking, dismissing, and degrading women’s appearances or backgrounds, they seek to delegitimize their qualifications and distract from their ideas.

Champion Women was formed to shine light on the problem, hold offenders accountable, and celebrate courageous women. No woman should be afraid to share her thoughts and beliefs. We encourage everyone to show respect for others who disagree with them and ask that they be given the same in return.

The only way to achieve real, lasting change is to come together as a unified force. We have a network of supporters and STAND or ARE ready to take on anyone who tries to tear down or shut up women.

How Does This
Affect You?

To allow personal, baseless attacks on women to go unchallenged sends a message to women everywhere: “Keep quiet or suffer the same fate.” These attacks prevent many women from participating in politics and their communities. It’s unfair, and we all lose out in the end.
