Mission: CAPP promotes women's equity in the workplace, in political participation, in family relationships, and throughout society, by formulating policy options that are responsive to the economic and social realities faced by contemporary women. Additionally, CAPP promotes a more responsible capitalism by pressing corporations to become fully accountable to their stakeholders: the employees, customers, communities, stockholders, suppliers, and the greater society (including the earth, its environment, and future generations), all of whom contribute significantly to corporate success or are affected significantly by corporate actions.

Programs: CAPP works on two fronts, by publishing the Women's Action Connectiv (WAC) and managing the Stakeholder Alliance. WAC (formerly the Washington Feminist Faxnet) is emailed to activists throughout the world. By encouraging action that advances women's equity, the WAC/WFF has been a factor in achieving actions and policies that are good for women and stopping or preventing many that are bad; moving the administration, federal agencies, corporations, colleges, and other organizations to a greater sensitivity for women's equity; and building public pressure and "street action" in behalf of these issues. The Stakeholder Alliance is a grassroots effort that seeks to change the corporate system to make it responsible to all stakeholders, instead of only to stockholders, and thus return corporations to their original public purpose. Our first objective is to make corporations fully and publicly accountable, through comprehensive public disclosure, for their actions. To that end the Stakeholder Alliance has formulated the Sunshine Standards for Corporate Reporting to Stakeholders. These standards represent the minimum level of disclosure that stakeholders have indicated they need to protect themselves from corporate harm and to participate rationally in free market exchanges with corporations.
