The National Women's Political Caucus of Metro St. Louis is a non-partisan, grassroots organization dedicated to increasing women's participation in the political process. In pursuing our mission, members identify, endorse and support women candidates, creating a true women's political power base to achieve equality for all women. We've helped elect women to the
legislature as well as other state and local office.
When women run, women win.
PROUD OF OUR HISTORY
The St. Louis chapter of the National Women’s Political Caucus was founded in 1971 by Susan Block, Betty Van Uum, Ora Lee Malone, Marcia Mellitz, Sally Barker and Vivian Eveloff after a speech by Bella Abzug. Sue Shear was the first candidate the Caucus recruited to run for a seat in the Missouri House.
In 2018, the local Caucus supported 29 winning women candidates.
