One in three women are living in or near poverty. Older women face poverty in far greater numbers than older men. The National Committee’s “Eleanor’s Hope” initiative, named in honor of First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, will raise awareness, recruit and train new activists and bolster Congressional leaders who are making a difference on women’s health and retirement security issues.

As part of Eleanor’s Hope, we’ll advocate for legislation in the new Congress that addresses the inequities threatening millions of retired women and work to elect lawmakers who share our vision of retirement equity for women. Take a moment to watch our video...and share with your friends.
