Women’s Rights

Rep. AOC believes that Women’s Rights are Human Rights, and that all women deserve equal access to workplace safety, equal pay, equal educational opportunities, paid parental leave, full access to healthcare, and more. As a member of the Pro-Choice Caucus, she led the fight to remove the notorious Hyde Amendment from the Labor, Health, and Human Services spending bill, moving us one step closer to ensuring reproductive justice for all. She has also worked with her colleagues in the House Oversight Committee to host hearings that uplift efforts for workplace safety and equal pay, specifically in our care economy.  For more on the Congresswoman’s work on this issue, please read on below.
