Lois has never wavered in her belief that a woman must freedom over their reproductive health without the involvement of government officials. She is a life-long supporter of women’s right to an abortion and birth control. She is one of the lead sponsors of the Women’s Health Protection Act, which would ensure access to abortion in every state. She also supports strong federal investment in in all areas of women’s health including contraception and maternal care.
As a co-chair of the Democratic Women’s Caucus, she has helped promote a progressive agenda that fights for equal pay, eliminating sexual harassment, and making sure women and girls have equal access to the tools needed to succeed so that our communities across the country are more prosperous.
Lois also believes we need more women’s voices in positions of power, which is why she works tirelessly to help get women elected to office, as a co-chair of both Elect Democratic Women and WomenLEAD under the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Both here at home, and around the world, Lois believes that when women succeed, society succeeds.
