Today is Women's Equality Day and the 92nd anniversary of the 19th Amendment.
Dr. Ami Bera offered the following comment:
"Equal rights and equal opportunity for all women are fundamental principles of a democratic society. As we pause to reflect on the progress we've made, we cannot forget the work still to be done.
Unfortunately, we must also continue to fight against a radical agenda that seeks to undo progress made decades ago. Moving forward, we must continue to fight for women to get equal pay for equal work. At the same time, we cannot go back to a time where women paid more than men for the same health care."
