CAWP: Statement on President Trump's Attacks on Congresswomen

 
 
For nearly fifty years, the Center for American Women and Politics has studied and analyzed women's political participation in the United States. Research shows that Cnb politics 2 women candidates and politicians already face elevated levels of harassment and threats of violence. This is worse for women of color.
 
The persistent attacks by the President of the United States on Representatives Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Tlaib are dangerous to these women individually, but also amplify the perceived risks to women as candidates and officeholders. Hostility fomented from the White House itself could further dissuade women in both parties from seeking office, dampening women's participation and making party recruitment efforts more difficult.

 People of good conscience should condemn this rhetoric.
