PAC & Donor Spending on Women Candidates


PAC and Donor Spending

With the support of a Network Grant from the Democracy Fund, RepresentWomen (formely Represenation2020) teamed up with the Center for Responsive Politics and Common Cause Education Fund to research PAC and donor giving to male and female candidates and to devise strategies to challenge them to set targets for the percentage - or overall amount  - that they give to women candidates.

The full report can be found here.

This collaborative project includes:

  • data analysis of PAC and donor contributions
  • qualitative interviews with PAC leadership
  • outreach to individual donors
  • consultation with a politically diverse group of experts
