Seneca Falls, the ERA, and Election Day

Happy Women's Equality Day! Today, we celebrate the 100th anniversary of women earning the right to vote, but we must also remember the century of activism that came before the 19th Amendment and more importantly perhaps, the century of activism that came after it.


It started right here in our district at the 1848 Seneca Falls Convention. The movement grew from the passage of the 19th Amendment, to the Indian Citizenship Act, and the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

Still, we wait for the full ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment, which was first proposed by the National Woman's political party in 1923. Progress is slow, but critical — and just this January, Virginia became the 38th state to ratify the ERA. That's just the type of progress I will work to accomplish in Congress. Help us get these policies in place by chipping in to our campaign today.

Right now, we're in a sprint towards Election Day. We can win and unseat Rep. Tom Reed and replace him with a champion for the advancement of women—but only with your support. Will you chip in $12 ahead of our end-of-month fundraising deadline and help us full the final stretch?
