Gutting social safety net programs, removing child care subsidies, cutting off access to family planning, destroying the unions that fight for jobs that are predominately held by women.

In their efforts to make sure that the most capable voices fighting for women in the General Assembly are silenced, they have waged an all out war on our Democratic women in elected office.”
