Our country is built upon the work and struggles of women. For too long this work and perseverance has been marginalized and tossed aside. I believe that the rights of women in America are the backbone of our society and democracy. The #metoo movement has shown that, while we have come far, we still have far to go. The scourge of violence and harassment against women needs to stop. It is simply unacceptable. We must be better than this. We can be better than this.
As Attorney General, I will investigate any claims of sexual harassment occurring in government. I will advocate for equal pay for women and will aggressively pursue cases of discrimination against women. I will ensure that proper funding for victim’s groups are maintained and the safety of battered women against gun violence. It is unhealthy to live in fear and this affects children the most, and this is where a bold Attorney General can make a difference by advocating for those who have no voice. By ensuring a woman’s right to counseling, therapy, legal services, shelter, and job training, we will provide survivors of domestic violence with the resources to successfully leave abusive relationships.
I will take on industries like healthcare and domestic service that employ large majorities of women to ensure equal pay and access to a living wage.
I am a strong pro-choice advocate and will do everything in my power as Attorney General to protect a women’s right to choose, and ensure that any attempts to weaken those rights are stopped.
