Causes We Love

There are a number of causes that we at Political Chicks would like to highlight, unfortunately if I add a thousand links to this page, I doubt any of them would get your attention so I decided to highlight just a few that promote women and children - their economic, political and personal freedom. God bless.

The Institute for Economic Empowerment of Women (IEEW)

The IEEW supports women all over the world, most notably through their Peace Through Business programs. “Women all over the world are embracing the philosophy that an economically sound country has a much greater capacity for peace.  PEACE THROUGH BUSINESS is a training program designed to provide long-term business education to women entrepreneurs in Afghanistan and Rwanda. Through our private partners, government agencies, and Institute staff, we provide a business education program in three phases: 1) In-Country Education, 2) Leadership Development, which includes Mentorship, an International Women’s Economic Summit, and Graduation.”
