In a bid to mobilize women voters, Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign is launching dozens of voter registration events, roundtables and phone banks across the country in the next week.

Among the surrogates participating in the week of "Women Together" activities is Chelsea Clinton, who will return to the campaign trail after the birth of her second child with two days of events in Carlisle and Scranton, Pa., on Wednesday and Thursday.

Anne Holton, the wife of Clinton's running mate, Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia, will hold a roundtable event in Dallas focused on women, children and families. Holton will also attend a "women-to-women" phone bank in Phoenix on Wednesday.

“Women have been a driving force behind this campaign since day one, and we are so grateful for the support and tremendous contributions they have made to this historic campaign," said Mini Timmaraju, the campaign's women’s vote director. "This week, a diverse coalition of women across the country will come together for a week of action to encourage women in their communities to register and commit to vote and join us in working to ensure that Hillary Clinton is elected our next president.”

President Obama's half-sister, Maya Soetoro-Ng; Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards; NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue; and "Sex in the City" actress Kristin Davis also will participate in events for Clinton.

In all, the campaign plans over 150 events across the country this week as part of its goal to register more than 3 million voters for this election.
