Donate today to support our Ohio Women Lead Candidates

Together we launched Ohio Women Lead. This effort is dedicated to advancing the 6 Democratic Female candidates running in Franklin County.



These candidates are State Representative Kristin Boggs (HD-18), Mary Lightbody (HD-19), Beth Liston (HD-21), Allison Russo (HD-24), Erica Crawley (HD-26) and Louise Valentine (SD-19), each is running for an open seat.



The 2016 election has created a wave of female candidates running throughout the country including a historic number of female nominees for Governor. Ohio Women Lead looks to highlight not only that women are running but also the unique perspective women can bring to office.



Currently, there are only 4 members of the Ohio Legislature, running for re-election, who have children under 18 and only two of these are mothers of school age children. As the legislature weighs issues such as school funding, safety initiatives and healthcare, mothers provide a unique perspective on how these decisions can impact their children’s futures.
