The New Hampshire Democratic Party’s Coordinated Campaign, Granite State Forward, will host women-to-women phone banks and organizing events across the state this week in honor of Women's Equality Day. Over the course of the past two months, hundreds of women have volunteered and taken action to reach out to tens of thousands of their friends and neighbors to talk about what's at stake this election.
While Women’s Equality Day commemorates the day the 19th Amendment was ratified in 1920, it is also a reminder that in the year 2014, there is still much work to be done toward achieving full equality for women.
“While Republicans down the ballot have sought to block equal pay for equal work, limit women’s access to contraception and allow employers to stand between women and their doctors, our female leaders at the top of the ticket have been fierce advocates for New Hampshire women and families,” said New Hampshire Democratic Party Communications Director Julie McClain. “This week, Women’s Equality Day is a call for action because when New Hampshire women organize, our state moves forward.”
