Take the Wheel and Drive Women: The Most Powerful Economic Force in America The U.S. Women's Chamber of Commerce™ is the independent force behind an economic revolution in America. We are at a crossroads in the economic history of America. During the 20th century, American women gained the right to vote, moved from the home to careers to business, leadership and politics. And, in the early 21st century women became the largest economic force in America. Over the last two decades, the economic influence of women in America has advanced dramatically. Women now own nearly 30% of all businesses in the U.S. Women make 80% of all family purchasing decisions, and control $7 trillion in purchasing power. Women not only influence the majority of home buying decisions – single women make up 22% of ALL home purchases. By 2010 women will control more than $13 trillion in private wealth. By owning the power of this critical mass and unifying our collective strength, we are moving beyond being just a sought-after consumer market to taking our position as the most powerful economic force in America. The USWCC drives this revolutionary economic movement, focusing the strength of our market position, and providing a comprehensive platform for progress. All the pieces are in place to help you grow a strong financial future. Now it's your turn to "Take the Wheel and Drive."

The U.S. Women’s Chamber of Commerce is driving the revolutionary Women’s Ownership Movement through a comprehensive platform for progress.

USWCC | MarketPlace also has a robust project and service related web portal for businesses that provide project and service offerings.
