According to a recent poll by the National Women's Law Center, women feel the impact of economic insecurity and rising food, energy, education, and health care costs more deeply than men – and see government as a key to the solution.
Women want a better health care system. We want an end to the wage gap. We want affordable birth control, comprehensive sex education, and protection for Roe v. Wade. We want access to high-quality child care, improved economic security for women and their families, and a solution to the dropout crisis. And we want a fair and independent judiciary.
Seems simple enough. But there's still a long way to go. And our government is making decisions every day that affect women’s lives.
