Matriarch aims to increase the number of progressive working women in office by endorsing and providing financial and infrastructure support to women without independent wealth and institutional connections or support. Matriarch endorses working women based on the following qualifications: 1) Little/no personal wealth or access to wealth. 2) Platform focused on income inequality, economic, racial, labor, social and environmental justice. 3) Working background, which we believe offers a more diverse field of candidates. 4) Community support; experience; connection to issues; motivation for running. If we want our government to start paying attention to working women, we need to change the face and control of government. And that starts by helping working women win - because when you elect working women to office, they fight for economic justice.
