Kim has been a longstanding champion of a woman's right to choose. As a mother of two children, Kim knows that these are personal and private decisions that should be made between a woman with the advice of her physician. While in the Montana state legislature, Kim strongly opposed conservative efforts to take away funding from planned parenthood, restrict a woman's right to choose, and block access to reproductive healthcare.

Kim is also a strong supporter of the Violence Against Women Act, as well as other programs which provide assistance to victims of domestic violence and child abuse. She has worked to provide Montana's local law enforcement officials with the resources necessary to address domestic violence and child abuse, and to make sure that abuse victims receive justice. While in the state legislature, Kim supported continued funding for Montana's Child Sex Predator unit.

As both a legislator and leader in the Democratic Party, Kim has led many fights against extreme efforts to that would defund sex education and overturn local ordinances against discrimination. She has always been a strong supporter of equal pay for equal work. In Congress, Kim will support both the Fair Pay act as well as tough enforcement of equal pay laws.
