Washington (CNN) – Condoleezza Rice will host her first Washington, D.C. fund-raiser Monday night in support of ShePAC, a super PAC focused on supporting Republican women.
Former Secretary of State Rice will lead a private briefing for GOP women serving in the House and Senate, a larger briefing for members and deliver remarks to a general reception, according to an adviser to the PAC.

"Though the population of the United states is 51% female, Republican women hold only 5.5% of our Congressional seats," the group's co-chairs and treasurer wrote in an email to supporters announcing their first fund-raiser. "Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is joining our efforts to change that percentage by helping us support Republican women."
ShePAC launched in February with the goal of electing conservative women across the country. They received national attention earlier in the year for an online video, "Bill Maher: Obama's Million Dollar Man," which they used to subsequently raise thousands of dollars.
The 29 GOP women currently serving in Congress were invited to Monday's events. The confirmed attendees include Senate candidates Deb Fischer of Nebraska, Heather Wilson of New Mexico and Sarah Steelman of Missouri. House candidates Martha Zoller of Georgia, Lisa Wilson-Foley of Connecticut, Karen Harrington of Florida, Wendy Rogers of Arizona, Kim Vann of California, Nancy Jacobs of Maryland, Faith Loudon of Maryland, Leah Campos-Schandlbauer of Arizona, Maria Sheffield of Georgia and Jason Love, representing his wife Mia Love of Utah will also attend, according to the adviser.
Monday's events follow Rice's appearance at a Mitt Romney presidential campaign retreat over the weekend. Although the former top diplomat in the administration of former President George W. Bush does not often play politics publicly, many attendees at the Utah gathering called Rice's speech to the group a highlight of the weekend.
Chuck Cobb, a former ambassador to Iceland, called Rice "spectacular."
"She's just a very bright, sophisticated, articulate lady," Cobb said.
Roughly 700 Romney donors and fund-raisers at the Park City, Utah resort were treated to panel discussions, speeches and a strategy briefing from Romney and his staff.
