Top activists launch Supermajority to harness women's political power

Three of the nation's most influential activists are launching a group called Supermajority to harness women's political power, AP's Julie Pace reports.

Details: The group is the creation of Cecile Richards, former head of Planned Parenthood; Alicia Garza, co-founder of Black Lives Matter; and Ai-jen Poo, executive director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance.

  • Supermajority, which describes itself as multiracial and intergenerational, has a goal of training and mobilizing 2 million women over the next year to become organizers and political leaders in their communities.

Why it matters: The effort comes at a moment when women have emerged as perhaps the most powerful force in politics.
