I think it’s appalling that we don’t support highly qualified women in their positions of power. I want us to have 50-50 representation of women in the State Assembly and beyond. I support full enforcement and publicity for Senator Jackson’s California Equal Pay Act, which was signed into law in 2015 and took effect in 2016. The gender income gap must be closed.
I support the Equal Rights Amendment to the United States Constitution. I will work hard in California to support removal of the 1982 deadline for two-thirds of states to approve it. All people – including women – are created equal.
