On the first day of Women’s History Month, first lady Jill Biden visited Atlanta on a rainy Friday to thank female voters in the state for their contributions to his campaign’s victory and to launch “Women for Biden-Harris,” a national organizing program intended to motivate women across the country to vote for President Biden and encourage their friends and family members to follow.

“It’s no accident that Georgia is where we’ve chosen to launch Women for Biden because four years ago, Georgia, you put us in the White House,” Jill Biden said at Studio House Atlanta, a female-owned event and working space. “That’s why I wanted to start here, in the place that lifted us over the top.”

In another sign of the state’s importance to Joe Biden’s campaign, the White House announced that the president will stump in metro Atlanta on March 9, although it didn’t release any other details.

Female voters are among those the Biden-Harris campaign is most eager to court.

They have been pivotal to both the president’s coalition and victories for Democrats nationwide. Black women in particular — who represent a large sector of Georgia’s voting body — proved their most staunch supporters, with 93% casting a ballot in their favor in the 2020 presidential election, according to AP VoteCast, a national survey of the electorate.
