Women’s rights are human rights

On August 26, 1920, the 19th Amendment was ratified, and women won the right to vote. Although it was a truly historic moment in the fight for equality, it was not a victory for everyone. Women of color were excluded, and it took more than forty years for them to win the right to vote.

We have celebrated many more victories since then. No-fault divorce, contraception access, and even the ability to open a line of credit would not be possible without the brave women who came before us.

On Women's Equality Day, we celebrate how far we have come and renew our commitment to the fight ahead.

Will you chip in now and fuel the fight for equality?

Unfortunately, too many women in the United States continue to face discrimination and violence every day.

And now, with the Dobbs decision, millions have lost their access to essential reproductive health care. Extremist Republicans in Congress and around the country are working hard to turn the clock back and reverse progress for women.

The good news is that the majority of Americans support access to a full range of reproductive services, including abortion. Every time abortion access has been on the ballot since the Dobbs decision, people have overwhelmingly voted to support it.

In Congress, I'm fighting for policies like paid parental leave, pay equity, domestic violence protections, and increased access to essential reproductive health care.

The fight for equality is far from over, and we're not backing down. Chip in now and help us move forward!

Thank you for standing with me,
