Tennessee Women’s Political Caucus
Welcome to the Tennessee Women’s Political Caucus website. We are committed to educating women on participation in the political process and supporting economic equality opportunities for women. We are in an active phase to grow our network across the state with membership in all three grand divisions. We would love for you to join us and help build a caucus in your community. Let us hear from you. We look forward to working with women across our state to elect more women and advocate for issues that are important to women, children, and families.
Statement on the Supreme Court’s Decision on Roe vs. Wade
The ruling by the Supreme Court to overturn Roe vs Wade turns back choice for women to have control over their bodies. It is a sad day in this country for women and young girls who are sexually assaulted and in need of this medical procedure. Removing this constitutional right will turn our country back decades, especially for minority women who will be most impacted by this outrageous decision. Women and like-minded men who believe in choice must vote for candidates who believe in a woman’s right to choose. Join us as we work to elect pro-choice women in the state of Tennessee, one of the states with trigger laws already in place.

of the Ratification of the 19th Amendment
On August 18, 2020, we marked the 100th Anniversary of the Ratification of the 19th Amendment granting women the right to vote. Tennessee was the 36th and final state to ratify the amendment by one vote. The Tennessee Woman Suffrage Monument, located in Nashville’s Centennial Park, stands to honor that hard-won battle. The Tennessee Women’s Political Caucus provided the seed money for the monument in 2010. Encouraging women to vote, training women to run for office, electing women to office, and fighting for equality in all aspects of our lives are the goals of the caucus.
