Ensuring equal pay for equal work, protecting a woman’s right to make her own healthcare decisions, and promoting gender equality in the workplace should all be universal values – and they’re values Max will defend and protect. He will:
- Demand that Congress stop spending their time and our money trying to undo Roe v. Wade, and defend women’s right to make their own healthcare decisions
- Fight for paid parental leave, the implementation of which could revolutionize workforce participation
- Insist our government protects a woman’s right to equal pay for equal work
- Reject any attempt to defund Planned Parenthood, which provides vital community health services to underserved communities
- Stand up and speak out against sexual harassment and gender-based discrimination
- Support programs to advance women’s participation in small business ownership and industries where they have traditionally be under-represented
For too long, women in America have had to fight the same battles over and over again. It’s time for Congress to start proactively supporting policies that give everyone the opportunity to reach their full potential.
