Texas Democrats on Women’s History Month

Texas Democratic Party Spokeswoman Brittany Switzer issued the following statement:

“When women succeed, America succeeds.

“This month, we celebrate the power and resilience of women everywhere and the women who fought for our rights and expanded opportunity.

“However, our work is not done. Many women still face barriers to economic equality, workplace opportunity, healthcare, and more. That’s why Texas Democrats are committed to closing the pay gap, fighting for paid leave, making child care affordable, ending violence and sexual harassment against women, championing healthcare for all, protecting women’s health and reproductive rights, and electing more women to office.

“There is a lot to fight for and celebrate this month. There is nothing more powerful than voting, running for office, marching, resisting, and making this world a better place.”
