DNC on Women’s History Month

To commemorate Women’s History Month, DNC Chair Jaime Harrison and DNC Women’s Caucus Chair Lottie Shackelford released the following statement:

“There is plenty to celebrate this Women’s History Month. In January, Kamala Harris became the first woman and woman of color to be sworn in as our nation’s vice president. And across the country, women organized, voted, and ran for office in record numbers. But if this pandemic has reminded us of anything, it’s that our fight for women’s equality is far from over. Women – especially women of color – have been hit hard by this economic crisis, while also making up a majority of frontline health care workers risking their lives to help save others. This year, let us not just celebrate our victories and honor history’s heroes; let us commemorate those we’ve lost from this pandemic; let us continue the fight for racial justice, economic equality, and gender equality; let us lift up the women working to keep our nation strong every day, and let us build back better. Last November, women were key to electing the leadership America deserved. Now we need to come together to move our nation forward and ensure a brighter future for all women.”
