The Orange County Registrar has reported final results for the 2022 general election, and we are thrilled to announce that 27 WIL candidates have been elected or reelected.
WIL was able to donate to a record number of women this year thanks to the generosity of our members and supporters. We are so proud of all the women who stepped up to represent our values and protect our rights, including those who will win next time!
Below is a list of the WIL Women who won in 2022 and a few races we want to highlight. We're also pleased to report that Proposition 1 passed with 67% of the vote, meaning that abortion rights will now be enshrined in the California Constitution.
Celebrating 2022 and Gearing Up for 2024
WIL is volunteer-run and almost all the money we raise goes directly to candidates. We're known for our strict vetting process and for providing early money to first-time and vulnerable candidates. Our goal is to head into the 2024 cycle with a war chest that will allow us to help even more women who support reproductive freedom get into elected office at every level of government. Please join us!
These amazing WIL Women are all on the November ballot. Read about them here and please support their campaigns in any way you can!

WOMEN MAKE BETTER LEADERS. WIL WOMEN WIN THEIR ELECTIONS.
Most of the toxic leaders who are trying to eliminate our freedoms at the national level started out at the local level. Our mission is to see those seats filled by women who will work tirelessly to improve the lives of women and all their constituents.
Whether you're joining for the first time, rejoining, upping your membership level or just renewing early to maximize the impact of your contribution in this crucial election year, know that your dues will be put to good use.
It takes incredible courage to run for office, and campaigning is grueling work. WIL offers the women who are stepping up in greater numbers than ever before the funding and visibility they need. We can't do it without you. Please join, rejoin or renew today!
