Yet women are still barred from entering politics

This is our story of changing the status quo.

Our Story

Women In Politics was founded in 2020 by then 14-year-old Rebecca Joseph. Through her high school Speech and Debate team, Joseph found her love for policy. However, after receiving negative comments rooted in her gender, Joseph wondered if politics was really for her. In the first few months of the pandemic, Joseph looked for a community of girls who could support each other in this seemingly uphill battle.

There was none.

Thus Women In Politics was born. In May 2020, we grew exponentially after a viral TikTok video grew our team to 100 people, and we added thousands of new community members in a matter of weeks.

But Rebecca's Story isn't Unique

At Women In Politics, we aim to change that mentality: showing young girls they deserve a seat at the table. Our work does not stop at making politics a tangible career path, but empowers our future women leaders to use their voices. 

Traditionally young girls are not given the same confidence support as men. Meaning, young girls are not encouraged to speak up, take leadership positions, or even raise their hands. By the time these young girls enter their professional careers, they have a confidence gap that limits their potential.

So whether you are interested in bettering your public speaking, a teenager dabbling in politics, or a young adult running for office, know that your WIP family is supporting you every step of the way.

Our Pillars

Women In Politics makes it possible for youth across the globe to connect, inspire, and encourage others with the same vision to create a better future. From our Community Geneva, International Ambassador Program, and interactive socials, we have a space for everyone in our WIP family.

Connecting Global Youth

Make Politics Accessible

Access to proper civic education and the professional political world has historically been exclusive to a certain class; however, Women In Politics is changing the status quo through our blog and educational opportunities.

Improve civic education

Our global youth is powerfully shaped by what is given to them at school. Thus, Women In Politics aims to provide educational resources specifically in politics to level the playing field. Through our book, writing workshop, and other events we give youth the tools they need.
