Women’s Issues

As a woman of color, I’m constantly thinking about what happens to our mothers, sisters, and daughters. The wage gap that persists is an affront and harmful to families, and unfortunately it gets even worse for women of color. We need to ensure there is quality affordable childcare so more women can comfortably work outside the home without having to be stressed about who’s going to watch our children. It’s so difficult to raise a family nowadays. Finally, we must continue the fight for paid parental and sick leave. Parents shouldn’t be concerned about losing their jobs or wages to take care of themselves or their families.
