The importance of prioritizing women’s issues

Barbara B. Kennelly

I was one of 21 women in the House (97th Congress) – so few confronting so many critical women’s priorities. As women have reached critical mass, it is vital to build relationships, support each other and promote issues essential to women’s equality.

You’ll inevitably be involved in global crises – as women, you must make sure women’s issues are not neglected because no one else will prioritize them. Safe and affordable daycare, top-notch schools, good jobs with equal pay – all are critical to keeping families strong.

We need even more women candidates, but they won’t run unless their families are secure.

The Honorable Barbara B. Kennelly
