Welcome to Chicago Women Take Action!

We are a group of women united in the commitment to achieve women’s leadership and economic and social equality. We are activists of all ages (many of us belong to several organizations) working on the local, national and international level to promote women leaders and secure the health and well-being of women, their families, and their communities.

We meet monthly to discuss our Women’s Agenda, organize and attend events throughout the year across the city.
