Tell Political Leaders: No Misogyny in the White House
President-elect Donald Trump has appointed Steve Bannon as his chief White House strategist and senior counselor. Bannon has made his anti-women views very clear and widely known. His views are not rumors. He has written them, he has published them, he has expressed them in interviews.
Several days after the announcement, many of our national legislators remain deafeningly silent about Bannon's appointment. Tell your representative to stand up and speak out against the appointment of a misogynist. If your representative has already taken a strong public stance against Bannon, your voice will serve to strengthen their effort to stop this appointment.
Congress: Support Women's Health, Support the EACH Woman Act
Women cannot achieve economic security or equality without the right to make decisions about their reproductive health. For 40 years, too many low-income women have been denied these decisions because of congressional restrictions.
The EACH Woman Act would prevent politicans from denying coverage for abortion care. It would ensure that all women, regardless of income, have control over their reproductive health.
Tell the Senate to Support the Gender Equity in Education Act!
The Gender Equity in Education Act builds upon the legacy of Title IX by increasing the resources made available to schools, school districts, states, and colleges and universities to implement its requirements.
Tell Political Leaders: It's Time to Ratify the Equal Rights Amendment!
The Equal Rights Amendment may seem unnecessary to some, but the truth is American women do not have explicit rights under The Constitution. The Equal Rights Amendment would provide an express constitutional basis to challenge sex-based discrimination. It would also ensure that laws and government actions that treat women differently are reviewed by the courts with the strictest of standards.
Congress: Support the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act!
The Pregnant Workers Fairness Act is a common-sense piece of legislation that would require employers to make reasonable accommodations when workers need them because of pregnancy, childbirth, and related medical conditions - just as they are already required to do for disabilities.
#FairPayNow! Tell Congress to Vote YES on the Paycheck Fairness Act
The Paycheck Fairness Act will strengthen existing pay equity laws by prohibiting retaliation against workers who discuss wages with their co-workers, and by filling other gaps in the Equal Pay Act. Loopholes in existing fair pay laws can cost women and their families nearly half a million dollars a year.
Tell Congress to Support the Equality Act!
The centerpiece of the Equality Act is its expansion of critical civil rights laws such as the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Fair Housing Act, and the Equal Credit Opportunity Act to include sexual orientation and gender identity as protected characteristics under these laws, adding to existing list of religion, race, sex, color, and national origin.
