DNC Response to Rand Paul Comments on Women in New Hampshire 

In New Hampshire, Rand Paul is suddenly eager to talk about a “war on women.” But on issues important to women and their families, Rand Paul has consistently been wrong, if not openly antagonistic…


  • ·         Violence Against Women Act
  • ·         Women’s Right to Make Their Own Health Care Decisions – On women’s health, Rand Paul would take decisions away from women and their doctors and place them in the hands of people like himself in Congress:


Below is a response to Rand Paul’s comments in New Hampshire from DNC National Press Secretary Holly Shulman:


“Rand Paul hopes his rhetoric will land him some headlines, but it can’t hide his deplorable record on issues important to women and their families. Paul continues to insist he’s the candidate who can broaden the GOP’s appeal to new constituencies, all while pushing an agenda that harms the very groups he’s asking for support from. If Rand Paul suddenly cares about women’s rights, then he needs to support equal pay, support the Violence Against Women Act, and support access to women’s health services. Until then, we don’t want to hear it.”

NH Sen. Clark's breastfeeding reform bill to to have first hearing 2/17/15 1:40PM 

Portsmouth Democrat's first 2015 legislative initiative to face initial hurdle Tuesday

CONCORD - State Senator 
Martha Fuller Clark's first legislative initiatives of the current session, a bill that would require employees to provide  appropriate accommodations for nursing 
mothers while at work, goes before the Senate Commerce Committee at a hearing on Tuesday. 

Sen. Clark will make the case for her bill with testimony at the beginning of the hearing 

WHO: Senator Martha Fuller Clark testifies in support her breastfeeding reform bill (SB219) before the Senate Commerce Committee

WHERE: Rm. 100 at the State House, 107 North Main St., Concord, NH 

WHEN: 1:40 PM 2/17/15
ABOUT SB 219: The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends exclusive breastfeeding through the first 6 months of an infant's life and continued breastfeeding until the infant is at least 12 months old . The World Health Organization, the US Surgeon General's Office, and the American Academy of Family Physicians also recommend similar periods of active breastfeeding for mothers and their infants.
Clark's proposal closely follows both federal and state legislation from around the country. Over 25 states have already passed similar legislation allowing for greater workplace access for nursing mothers during this crucial first year.  The Affordable Care Act also requires employers to provide such accommodations and provides for legal recourse to working mothers if employers fail to do so. 
Senator ​​Martha Fuller Clark represents Senate District ​21 which is comprised of the communities of Durham, Lee, Madbury, Newfields, Newington, Newmarket, and Portsmouth.  
These are the stakes...To make a world in which all of God's children can live, or to go into the dark. We must either love each other, or we must die. LBJ, 1964

Women's Defense League of NH - SB 116 is a Pro-Choice, Pro-Women's Rights Bill

The Women's Defense League of New Hampshire  announces its support of SB 116 - AN ACT repealing the license requirement for carrying a concealed pistol or revolver.  We will be testifying in Concord in support of this bill on Thursday, January 29th at 1PM when the Senate Judiciary Committee holds a public hearing on it.

This common sense legislation allows women the choice to be licensed or not and makes clear that New Hampshire guarantees women their fundamental right of self-defense.  The majority of women gun owners in New Hampshire carry concealed as opposed to open carry.  This bill enables women who are legally able to own firearms the right to practice concealed carry without the impediment of obtaining a license.

Because SB 116 offers women the choice of licensure or not, it is truly a Pro-Choice, Pro-Women's Rights bill.  

The League thanks  Senate Majority Leader Jeb Bradley for his clearly demonstrated support of women's rights issues here in New Hampshire in bringing forth this important legislation.
