IWV is proud to have played a role in this election


Washington, DC – Tonight, Independent Women’s Voice (IWV) congratulates Senate-elect Josh Hawley on his victory in Missouri. IWV is proud to have played a role in this election and Independent Women’s Forum (IWF) is proud to have helped shape people’s understanding of the issues.

With a combined $1.8m in spending, IWF focused on policy education and IWV focused on persuasion, in Missouri and 20 other states with deeply contested midterm races. Using mailers, phone calls, and text messages, IWF educated misinformed constituents about the real healthcare positions advanced by the GOP, and not those propagated by the left. IWV in turn linked candidates with their party's healthcare positions, ultimately leaving the choice of who to support up to voters. Our message testing materials, which countered the left’s claims and addressed misperceptions about healthcare, pre-existing conditions, and “Medicare-for-All”, significantly improved policy understanding and, without any mention of any candidate or party, as a corollary, moved non-conservative GOP females +9 points in tests on the ballot test.

Congratulations and welcome to Washington, Josh Hawley.


Independent Women's Voice fights for women and families by effectively expanding support for policy solutions and political campaigns that aren’t just well intended, but actually enhance people’s freedom, choices, and opportunities.
