Women’s Rights

Women have made great strides in the fight for equal rights, including the right to vote, and inroads in equal opportunity in the workplace. Women have risen in the ranks of education and continue to prove that they can rise to any occasion if given an equal opportunity, but gender bias continues to create huge barriers for many,
especially poor women, women of color, and immigrant women. Other issues include: Ensuring equal economic and educational opportunities, Protecting a woman’s right to choose, Ending gender-based violence, and Addressing the harm that has and is being done to women and girls in the criminal justice system. I will fight to see that our daughters will not be judged by the gender of their humanity, but by the power of their thoughts and the virtue and grace of their spirit.
