Many thanks to the 100+ NOW members and supporters who responded to our December survey. We asked what feminist issues you cared most about at the state level.
These were your top issues: safeguarding reproductive rights, improving women’s health care, supporting programs to reduce violence against women, and ending human trafficking.
There was also strong support for working for LGBT equality and the Equal Rights Amendment, adequately funding human needs services, supporting pre-K and kindergarten programs, and enforcing child support payments.
These are among the issues we’ll pursue when the General Assembly convenes. Stay tuned for more about the upcoming legislative session and our new governor, Bob McDonnell.
