Help Project WitchHunt vote out politicians who are sexual predators, and replace them with women candidates who can do their jobs better.
Women have led the resistance to Donald Trump. His “grab them by the pussy” comments, which came to light in October 2016, directly inspired the creation of the Pussy Hat, a cat-eared, pink, knitted hat that so many protesters wore to the Women’s March and its satellite events around the world.
His comments also indirectly led to the #MeToo movement, which has outed and brought down scores of sexual predators who saw their fame as a shield that let them abuse with impunity.
Trump’s election also prompted scores of women to run for office. Emily’s list reported in December 2017 that it had received more than 25,000 inquiries from women interested in running, and 8,000 more signed up to help women run. In the ten months leading up to the November 2016 election, Emily’s List received about 1,000 requests from prospective candidates.
These trends come together in Project WitchHunt. It pledges “to build a rapid response search team that will find a great woman to run in every seat held by a man accused of sexual assault, and a candidate support organization that will raise money, endorsements, and support for every woman we recruit to run.”
Created by women with experience working for Spread the Vote, Crowdpac, and Sister District Project, Project WitchHunt is in its early days, but it has a worthy purpose.
