Women

The women’s suffrage movement and the feminist movement in American were early steps toward gender equality and access to the workplace and education. But today women still face violence, discrimination, and institutional barriers in their struggle toward equal participation in society.

Institutional biases limit opportunities for women in the workplace via policies that exclude women from certain job sectors and penalize them for becoming pregnant or raising children. These translate to gross disparities between men’s and women’s income, wealth, and economic security.

Additionally the overwhelming institutional biases against gender-based violence survivors are a constant reminder that living safely and with dignity is not always an option for women.

Moves by the GOP in recent years, to limit abortion rights and reproductive healthcare of all forms, threaten to take women’s sovereignty over their own bodies out of their hands.
