What is The Ripple?
At The Ripple, we believe that empowered women are the key to America’s future.
Women have been completely disenfranchised in our society, and while not all disenfranchisement is equal, it doesn’t make any single woman less valuable or worthy. Waves start from ripples, and The Ripple is about empowering women to make waves in their communities through meaningful and lasting change.
