Women’s History Month is upon us! While we’re busy remembering and celebrating the strides women have made throughout history to achieve equality, EMILY’s List champion Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, mayor of Baltimore and Secretary of the Democratic National Committee reminds us that we should be looking forward to future success.
This week, EMILY’s List President Stephanie Schriock stopped by Morning Joe. She talked about the history EMILY’s List has made over the last 28 years, reminding us that when EMILY’s List started, no Democratic woman had won a seat in the United States Senate in her own right ever – not until Barbara Mikulski. “We had MTV before there was a women’s bathroom in the United States Senate,” Schriock explained to the panel.
March is National Women’s history month and today is International Women’s Day! When we hear the words ‘international’ and ‘women’ one EMILY’s List woman always springs to mind. We hope you can take some time to celebrate that certain special someone with us. Can you guess who she is?
It’s been a long time coming, but the Violence Against Women Act is finally heading to President Obama’s desk for his signature. This is due in no small part to the tireless efforts of EMILY’s List women like Rep. Gwen Moore, Rep. Louise Slaughter and Senator Patty Murray.
