ADVISORY: Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand to Keynote Event on Women, Elections, and the Issues that Matter

Washington, D.C. — On Wednesday, November 12, 2014, the Center for American Progress Action Fund will host Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) for an event on the key issue priorities for women and what policies must be on the agenda to respond to women’s needs. Her remarks will be followed by a panel discussion with leading experts about the importance of women voters and the issues that matter to them, particularly looking back at the 2014 midterms and ahead to the expected policy debates and elections over the next few months and years.

As more and more women play a central role in the economic security and viability of their families, they consistently identify issues such as equal pay, paid leave, child care, and health care access as vital concerns. Yet many workplace policies remain stuck in the past, disconnected from today’s realities and unresponsive to women’s needs. Increasingly, women are making their voices heard and making clear they want to see policies that can make a real difference for working families.
