- In addition to fighting discrimination, we must work to enact policies that allow both men and women to move in and out of the workforce as needed to pursue educational opportunities or care for dependents.
WOMEN’S HEALTH CARE
Mission: I will defend a woman’s right to choose and to access safe, legal, and affordable health care. Reproductive health should not be a privilege for only those who can afford it. As the biggest women’s health care provider in our district, I will defend federal funding to Planned Parenthood, as well as any other program that provides safe and affordable health care to our constituents.
COMBATTING SEXUAL HARASSMENT
- We must support initiatives that increase women’s participation in leadership positions, which is critical to changing the culture of sexual harassment in workplaces.
- We must also establish remedies for those who are sexually assaulted or harassed outside of the workplace.
- I support the Fair Employment Protection Act and would work to advance it in Congress.
