Women's Issues

Lois has never wavered in her belief that a woman must have the right to make choices about her body without the involvement of government officials. She is a life-long supporter of women’s reproductive rights. Lois is a committed supporter of Roe v. Wade and believes that access to effective birth control and emergency contraception should be guaranteed to all women.

This Administration has worked to turn back the clock on women and families and has repeatedly attacked women’s reproductive rights and health care. Lois will stand strong against anyone who attacks these basic rights and essential programs. 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.
