Working for Women

During my time in Congress I have been a champion for improving the lives of women and advancing gender equality. From working to increase the 77 cents that women make for every dollar earned by a man to ensuring that women have access to affordable health care, I have made women and their families a top priority.

As the immediate past Democratic Chair of the Congressional Caucus for Women’s Issues, the largest bipartisan caucus in Congress, I have spearheaded efforts to ensure women have equal opportunity and are treated fairly. I have fought year after year for adequate funding to make shelters and supportive services more accessible to victims of family and domestic violence.  I have also led the way on legislation that would improve our nation’s response to domestic violence, and help prevent teen dating violence.  In addition, I have authored legislation that would help low-income women -  including those who are welfare recipients - find a pathway out of poverty and a better life for themselves and their children.
