Defending Women’s Rights

  

Women across the country continue to face many barriers to achieving their fullest potential. This divisive presidential election season makes facing these challenges all the more urgent, especially for the millions of women of color who risk being pushed even farther to the sidelines under a Trump Administration.

   

That’s why having strong women in local leadership will be key to protecting and strengthening women’s rights in the years ahead. Marjorie is ready to take up this fight. Marjorie will work in the Council to strengthen paid family leave laws, so that women and all workers won’t have to choose between their careers and their families. She will also help ensure women receive equal pay for equal work. For Marjorie, protecting women’s rights also includes ensuring a woman can make her own healthcare choices. The government has no place getting between a woman and her physician. With Marjorie in the Council, that will remain the law of the land.
