HomeWomen's Issues

Women’s rights include economic equality, political equality, legal/judicial equality, health care equality, and freedom from: gender bias/misogny, gender-based violence, and racism as a multiplier of inequality

These issues are part of the LWV's agenda:

  1. Economic Equality - Working with our partners in the Coalition for Pay Equity (Gender Pay Equity Scorecard, Living wage, ending use of salary history)
  2. Political Equality (Equal Rights Amendment to the US Constitution)
  3. Health Care Equality (Reproductive Rights)

Ask your US Senators and Representatives to support S.J. Resolution 4, which eliminates the deadline for the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment and clears the way for its final inclusion in the Constitution.
