“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 this November, women will vote Democratic and shatter the highest glass ceiling when they elect Hillary Clinton the first woman President of the United States.
One of President Obama’s first acts as president was signing the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. Democrats continue to fight to expand opportunity for women. By closing the pay gap, passing paid leave, confronting violence against women, and guaranteeing 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. When there are no barriers to entering the workforce on ceilings on advancement, the sky's the limit for American women.
