Putting Women In Their Place is a social venture made up of women in media who sponsor, produce and film campaign videos for progressive, pro-choice women running for office.

Our 1000 Videos Campaign will sponsor videos for 20 candidates in all 50 states. This crowdfunding initiative is our first step towards achieving that goal. Video is a powerful tool for candidates, reinforcing their message and their platform while providing a face and a voice to their campaign. Video can, however, be cost prohibitive and overwhelming for smaller campaigns or first-time candidates.

After the 2016 election, we knew we wanted to see more women in office at every level of government. We launched Putting Women In Their Place in September 2017--just two months before election day. We completed videos for 42 candidates in 4 states and 40% of them won their campaigns, many of them first-time candidates who were running against incumbents.

The contributions made to this crowdfunding campaign will be used to produce and film videos for 30 candidates across the country. In the event that our initial goal is surpassed, all contributions received will continue to go directly towards supporting candidates as a part of the 1000 Videos Campaign.

Despite making up 51% of our country’s population, women account for less than 25% of our elected officials. We can do better than that. From the courthouse, to the statehouse to the White House, this organization was launched because women deserve equal representation at all levels of government. With your contribution, we will make a difference in narrowing the gender gap for our communities, for our states, and for our country this Election Day.

You've supported them, now hear from the candidates directly.

Thanks to your generous contributions, Putting Women In Their Place is closing in on $7,000 to support women running for office this year. Private contributions made directly to PWITP bring that total to almost $8,500. That means that there are 8 candidates who will now receive a campaign video, thanks to you.

Help us to keep the momentum going and consider contributing to our campaign again or sharing with your friends and family. Together we can narrow the gender gap and put women in their place.

We spoke to some of our candidates to find out just how much these campaign videos mean to them.

Thank you to those who have donated or endorsed so far, and let's keep the momentum going.
