Welcome to Supermajority! Join Us

On behalf of the whole team, I’m delighted to welcome you as a founding member of this community.

I’ve been an organizer all my life. After graduating college, I moved to New Orleans to organize with hotel workers who were fighting for safer working conditions and a living wage. More recently, I had the honor of leading Planned Parenthood and advocating for reproductive justice. In more than 30 years of organizing, the world has changed a lot. But one thing has held true — women are always on the front lines of fighting for what’s right.

What’s different this time around is just how many women there are: the teachers in Arizona, Oklahoma, California, and West Virginia who went on strike for public education. Teenage girls who are leading the fight against climate change. Women everywhere speaking out against sexual assault and harassment. And of course the millions of women (and our allies) marching all across the country for issues like reproductive rights and equal pay.

One of my comrades in this effort, Ai-jen Poo, says it best: “Women have always been forces for change in this country, but we’ve never run the country.”

There’s no time like the present, Jean.

That’s what Supermajority is all about — women coming together across issues and identities to fight for our shared values and demand what we need from those in power.

Can you invite five women you know to become founding members of Supermajority with you? Just share this link with them.

Much more to come — but we’re thrilled to have you as part of the team.

In solidarity,

Cecile Richards
Supermajority co-founder

SheVille Team

We are a one-of-a-kind magazine that provides local, regional, national and international information about women’s lives and education, performing and visual arts and writing, the environment, green living and sustainability and regional Western North Carolina business, people and events. “Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers. Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society. Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears. Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi Our Mission SheVille.org provides readers with information important to women’s lives and well-being. We focus primarily on the areas of education & health, business & finance, the arts & the environment. We are particularly interested in local & regional resources, organizations & events.
