WOMEN & WOMEN'S
My grandmother is my inspiration. She was one of the first women in Congress in my birth country, Iran, and she courageously fought for and won women’s right to vote. Her memory is a constant reminder to me of what is possible when we come together to fight for what is right and just, for women and for everyone.
I support a woman’s right to choose, and I support efforts to expand access to contraception. I will fight to protect the Title X Family Planning Program.
The US is the only industrialized nation in the world without a national paid family leave policy - I will work to change that and win a national right to paid parental leave and paid time off for people to care for sick relatives.
I will fight for equal pay for all women, and I will work to ensure the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission fully enforces non-discrimination in the workplace.
And I will defend Title IX programs that allow young women and girls full access to athletic opportunities.
