The Wish List is an organization whose acronym for Women In the Senate and House. It is a political action committee devoted to electing pro-choice Republican women to the House of Representatives and Senate, The Wish List was founded in 1992. It can be considered a counterpart to two other organizations: Emily's List, whose goal is to elect pro-choice Democratic women, and the Susan B. Anthony List, whose goal is to elect pro-life women. The Wish List maintains strong alliances with other liberal Republican groups, such as The Republican Majority For Choice, It's My Party Too, and Republicans For Choice.
