Read about my efforts in Congress to close the pay gap, strengthen family leave programs, and expand economic opportunities for all women.
Women in the Hudson Valley and across the country are breadwinners, caretakers, innovators, and leaders in the workplace, at home, and in our communities. We all benefit when women are treated equally under the law. From Seneca Falls to today, women have led the way toward full equality, but we still have a lot of work left to do.
Ensuring equality of opportunity for everyone – regardless of gender – is one of my top priories in Congress. That’s why I launched a comprehensive agenda to increase opportunities for women. My plan includes:
- Expanding mandatory sexual harassment training and protections for members of Congress and their staff
- Strengthening the Equal Pay Act
- Establishing National Paid Family and Medical Leave
- Increasing Quality and Affordable Early Childhood Education
- Making College More Affordable
- Protecting a Woman’s Freedom of Choice
- Supporting Women Entrepreneurs and Small Businesses
