The Feminist Majority, one of the leading women’s rights organizations in the nation, endorses Debbie Wasserman Schultz for re-election to U.S. Congress in Florida’s 23rd District.
“For 24 years, Debbie Wasserman Schultz has proudly represented South Florida in the state legislature and in the U.S. Congress. She’s consistently defended reproductive rights, been an advocate for sexual assault survivors, and has helped shape an agenda that protects and advances the gains made for women’s rights in Congress,” said Eleanor Smeal, President of the Feminist Majority.
“As a working mother who was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 41, Debbie recognizes the importance of affordable child and health care in making sure women and their families do not slip into debt. Her advocacy for policies like equal pay, paid sick days, and federally funded pre-K works to give Floridians the opportunity they and their children deserve,” continued Smeal.
Wasserman Schultz is featured on the Feminist Majority Political Action Committee’s website. The Feminist Majority PAC was founded in 2002 to support feminist candidates for president, Congress, and some state offices. The FM PAC seeks to end the under-representation of women and minorities in elected office and achieve political parity for women.
With the wide range of feminist issues that we support — including women’s healthcare and reproductive rights, violence against women prevention, economic equity, civil rights, LGBT rights, collective bargaining, immigration, gun control, CEDAW ratification, Equal Rights Amendment passage, affirmative action and environmental protection — FM PAC’s ultimate goal is to elect feminist women who will champion our causes in the halls of Congress and in state legislatures across the nation.###
