The Riveter’s 3 Questions

What’s one thing you, as a candidate, can do right now to make equity of opportunity for women a reality? 

Women all across the country have a story to share about challenges they’ve faced because of their gender identity. As a candidate, it’s my responsibility to lift up their voices. It’s what I did when I went to Georgia to bring attention to the women leading the fight against the Republican Party’s draconian abortion ban and it’s what I’ll continue to do on my campaign and as president. 

What role do men have in creating a future of gender equity?

Women just want to have a seat at the table with men. Men have the responsibility to educate themselves on the issues that impact women and still hold so many women back in society, the economy and the workplace. Then, these allies should take that knowledge and help other men understand the realities of issues like the gender pay gap or the high rates of violence that women experience, particularly indigenous and transgender women.
