Texas Democratic Party Executive Director Crystal K. Perkins issued the following statement:
“Today on International Women’s Day, we reflect how far women have come in our society and how far we still have to go. While women’s history should be celebrated year round, today we celebrate the contributions of women across the world and the role they have played in shaping and moving our society forward. When women have full and equitable representation, we are all better for it, and that’s the society we’re fighting for.
“Texas Democratic women are making history at home with the most number of female candidates running for office and we’re poised to elect the first two Texas Latina congresswomen ever.
“Texas Democrats will continue to stand in solidarity with women across our state, nation, and world. Together, we’re voting, running for office, marching, resisting, and making this world a better place for all.”
