Friday's gathering included a welcome message from Gov. Maggie Hassan, the nation's only female Democratic governor and an aggressive Clinton supporter in 2008 as a member of the New Hampshire legislature.
Hassan was careful not to endorse Clinton publicly on Thursday. Instead, she called on all women to get involved.
"There is a community, a state and a country that needs you," Hassan said. "They need your voice. They need your experience. They need your perspective."
Women played key roles in electing Democrats for decades, having backed the Democratic candidate over the Republican in each presidential election dating back to 1988. The margin in favor of the Democratic candidate has varied, however, peaking at 16 points for Bill Clinton in his 1996 re-election bid and ebbing to just 3 points for John Kerry in 2004.
Obama won women voters by 11 percentage points last fall.
Schriock suggested that Democrats would be heartbroken should Clinton decline to run, but listed a handful of other possible Democratic contenders: Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and former Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, among them.
Meanwhile, in Washington on Friday, Gillibrand delivered a speech outlining several proposals likely to appeal to female voters, including offering paid family medical leave, an increase of the federal minimum wage to $10.10 an hour and the doubling of tax credits for child care.
"The key to a growing economy, the key to an American middle class that is built to thrive in the 21st century is our women," Gillibrand said.
