Women's Rights

"We need to make equal pay and equal opportunity for women and girls a reality so women’s rights are human rights once and for all."
- Hillary Clinton

As outraged and offended as I am by the Trump presidency, I can only imagine how women must feel. Women have been discriminated against in the workplace for years, and made to feel unsafe because of our backwards views on domestic violence and sexual assault. Things are even worse now, as the ascendance of a man who brags about sexually assaulting women to the highest office in the land sends the message that it is ok to mistreat women. It breaks my heart.
 
At the same time, it has been inspiring to see women leading the charge to fight back against Trump and all the hate, discrimination, and misogyny he stands for. As more people are being awakened to the plight of women, I hope we can come out of this dark time ready to fight for the end to the mistreatment of women we have tolerated for too long. We need more female voices in politics, and I hope this is the start of a movement that finally breaks the stranglehold the old white male has had on this country’s politics since its inception.
 
I see many of the wrongs being perpetrated against women, but I also recognize that I will never truly understand women’s issues. I rely on the advice and insight of the women on my campaign team, and will continue to do so throughout my time in politics. Some of the issues I will champion if I am elected to represent the 6th District include:
