Women’s rights are human rights. I will fight to keep Congress from moving this nation backwards, and I will vigorously oppose any attempts to write out women’s healthcare protections from our healthcare legislation.
As your congressman, I will fight for equal wages for equal work, workplace protection laws, and subsidized maternity leave, so that there is no gender-based economic disparity between women and men.
I will champion the “It’s On Us” initiative to ensure victims of sexual assault are able to come forward without fear, and can find refuge – not barriers – in our legal system.
Words matter; action matters more. I will enter this Congress knowing that we are fighting against more attacks on women’s rights and women’s benefits than many of our young voters have ever seen, and I will do everything in my power to fight against language and laws that hurt and silence young women as they begin to find their place in the world.
I will fight against
- Laws and incompetence that shield and protect perpetrators of sexual assault
- Misogynistic language, actions, and laws
