A supermajority is defined as any vote that requires more than a simple majority in order to win approval, or any group making up more than one half of a population. In the America of 2019, at 50.8 percent, the female population qualifies as a supermajority–and it's one which wields a great deal of potential political power.
Yesterday, former Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards announced that she is starting a new women’s political action group with Alicia Garza, cofounder of Black Lives Matter, and Ai-jen Poo, director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance.
The group, to be called Supermajority, will partner those organizations and others to train women on how to participate in politics and activism in their communities. And their goals are far from modest: they hope to educate and mobilize over 2 million women over the next year.
