Women’s March unveiled their comprehensive federal policy platform: the Women’s Agenda.
Over the course of two years, the Women’s March has steadily been building its power, organizing large-scale marches and mobilizations in 2017 and 2018, full-throatedly fighting back against the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, and bringing #PowerToThePolls in the November midterm elections. Now with a record breaking number of women in Congress and an integrated network of grassroots advocates, policy experts, and women leaders, the Women’s March is wielding its power to influence federal policy and bring change for those who need it the most.
The Women’s Agenda lays out the priorities of the organization for the next two years and serves as a roadmap for the work ahead. The platform includes: passing the Equal Rights Amendment, universal healthcare/Medicare for All, investing in independent living and autonomy for women with disabilities, expanding the Violence Against Women Act to include Native women, democracy reforms that include voting rights and campaign finance reform, the decriminalization of sex work, passing the Equality Act, reducing racial health disparities in maternal health, and repealing the Hyde Amendment.
