Women Speak Up on New START!

Over the past few months, we’ve seen a dramatic increase in the coverage of New START in the media. We’re excited that women’s voices have played such a prominent role in this national security conversation.

From Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and New START’s chief negotiator Rose Gottemoeller to WAND and WiLL members all over the country, women are weighing in and making their voices heard. Click the links below to read a sampling of women leaders appealing to our U.S. Senators to put national security ahead of politics and vote to ratify New START by the end of the year!
