Rural Women Rising

Why We Support Rural Women

Rural women are leaders in our country, essential workers in our communities, caregivers and decision-makers at home, and a powerful force at the ballot box. Their voices are critical. We can achieve transformative change in rural communities by fully engaging the leadership that exists in these communities and specifically focusing on empowering and engaging women. When women are put in positions of power, they create policies that benefit women, children and the entire community.

What We Do


Rural Women Rising aims to increase the political representation and power of the more than 19 million rural women and girls across the United States. We focus on providing rural women and girls with the tools and the network that they need to be able to exercise their civic muscle to run and lead in their communities. 


Rural Women Rising re-defines who rural women and girls are by informing and educating the public about their priorities. We create new ways to share our stories and messaging to ensure rural America and rural women are accurately portrayed and represented.


Women who live and work in rural America come from diverse backgrounds, including Latina, Indigenous and Native, Black, and Asian women, as well as women of other races and ethnicities. Rural Women Rising believes leadership development and civic engagement initiatives are at the heart of making real and meaningful change for rural women and girls.
