On Thursday, June 17th 2010, EMILY’s List announced a new program called EMpower. We were filming WIN’s 21st Annual Women Opening Doors for Women, where Stephanie Schriock, President of EMILY’s List, announced the new program:

What is EMpower?

Twenty-five years ago, 25 women gathered in a basement, rolodexes in hand, to send letters to their friends about a network they were forming to raise money for pro-choice Democratic women candidates. Today, EMILY’s List is one of the nation’s largest and most successful political action committees. But the fight isn’t over, and while the tools are different, the mission remains the same. It’s time to EMpower the next generation of Democratic women. It’s our time. EMpower is a place to network, to learn about candidates throughout the country, to collaborate, and to see our individual and collective impact make a real difference.

  1. ….  never has there been such a tremendous disconnect between a group’s stated purpose and its actual impact, which seems to be electing as many  Blue Dog Attorneys as possible of either gender.  Behold, I give you the list, donations 2010 cycle


    I can’t believe these clowns wasted a third of a million dollars on Martha No Public Option Coakley  

    and if you think Carnahan is going to be any better than McCaskill, check out the leadership PACs which are donating to her already from the same energy, tobacco,  and drug corporations that control the Senate Finance Committee.

    After the Senate fiasco with the health care bill basically cutting back a woman’s right to chose Unless She Is Already Wealthy, there is no reason to continue the charade.
