Sam Bennett has been recognized as one of the Women’s eNews “21 Leaders for the 21st Century” for her work  promoting women in politics.

“[Sam] is the president and CEO of the Women’s Campaign Fund, the oldest organization to financially support female candidates and unique in its exceptionally early endorsement of women at all levels, from all parties who support reproductive choices and options, because choices can only be protected from both sides of the aisle, says Bennett.

“A former small-business owner who was active in local politics and the nonprofit sector, Bennett decided that putting women into office was crucial to achieving her personal ideals…

“In April 2009, Bennett stepped to the helm of the Women’s Campaign Fund. The organization endorses, raises funds for and provides networking opportunities for female candidates. Its sister nonprofit, “She Should Run,” seeks to eliminate the barriers preventing women from ascending to public leadership and encourages women to be asked to run for office via www.sheshouldrun.org.

“‘After years of working to make a difference, it became clear that the most significant way was through politics. If more women were in office, health care and other issues would improve,’ she says.”
