Happy Women's Equality Day! On this day in 1920, women finally won the right to vote across the country with the passage of the 19th Amendment. We have come a long way, but we still have so much more work to do to make sure women are treated fairly. It is long past due that women are paid the same amount as men for equal work.We also need to push for more programs which support women and their families like pre-K education, childcare services, pay equity, and social safety net programs for single parents. A good start is legislation like the Paycheck Fairness Act, which allows women to petition their employers if they think they're being paid unfairly. You can rest assured, I will fight for equal pay for equal work in Congress because women deserve the same opportunities and financial security men receive every day in the United States.
