When the Supreme Court sided with Hobby Lobby earlier this year, five men told every woman that the rights of corporations are more important than women’s access to basic healthcare.
And when the U.S. Senate failed to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act - twice - they told all of our daughters that no matter how much they achieve, their work will never be worth the same as their male counterparts.
Why This Election is Vital
Our state has a long and proud history of supporting women’s rights. But even here in Washington we are losing ground.
Just one thing stands between a state that is moving our country forward when it comes to women's equality: electing more women to our state legislature on November 4.
Next month's election is critical. Washington women could lose access to basic healthcare. We could undo years of progress towards funding a family leave bill or passing a statewide Paycheck Transparency Act.
Electing women to office has never been more important. NWPC-WA needs your help to elect a pro-woman majority. Election Day is drawing closer rapidly, and across our state, women candidates still need our help if we want to elect a woman-powered Washington.
