Women’s Rights

Unfortunately, it is still true in the United States that women are not paid equally compared to men doing the same work. In short, women are not treated equally and fairly.

Trump Republicans have consistently fought raising the minimum wage so that it becomes a sustainable living wage. Republicans have failed to support legislation aimed at reducing costs for childcare, and family leave legislation to help ease the economic burden of American families.

Hillary Clinton will pass the Paycheck Fairness Act, that she introduced as a United States Senator. That will give women a way to fight discrimination they encounter in the workforce. She will fight for raising the minimum wage, which will have an overwhelming effect on working women. She will continue to support the work of Planned Parenthood and protecting reproductive rights. She will fight to strengthen efforts to confront violence against women.

Hillary will fight every day for women’s equality, rights and dignity here at home and all over the world.
