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

 

 

I will fight for

  • Equal pay for equal work
  • Economic opportunities and safe workplaces for women
  • Subsidized maternity leave
  • A woman’s right to make decisions about her own health and her own body
  • Justice for victims of sexual assault
