“We are committed to ensuring full equality for women. Democrats will fight to end gender discrimination in the areas of education, employment, health care, or any other sphere. We will combat biases across economic, political, and social life that hold women back and limit their opportunities.”
-Democratic Party Platform
The Democratic Party and women share common values and priorities, including supporting our families, protecting our country, and advancing the issues that matter most to women of all ages and ethnicities.
Democrats are working tirelessly to advance progress for women across the country in every respect. That’s why women vote Democratic. And in 2016, four Democratic women — including three women of color — were elected to the Senate, and Hillary Clinton made history as the first woman to win the popular vote for President of the United States.
Democrats continue to fight to expand opportunity for women. By confronting violence against women, fighting for workplace equality, pushing for pro-family policies like paid family leave, and defending a woman’s right to control her own body, Democrats will make sure that women thrive in our country, because we know that when women succeed, America succeeds.
