Former North Dakota Attorney General and U.S. Senate candidate Heidi Heitkamp released the following statement on Women's Equality Day, the 92nd Anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote:

"Our fight for equality since the passage of the 19th Amendment has led to new opportunities for mothers and daughters across our country. Today, it is important to reflect on the progress that we have made in the years since the 19th Amendment was passed and recognize the contributions so many women have made -- whether it is serving in our armed forces, serving as the police and fire fighters who keep our communities safe, or as the teachers who give opportunity to our children. But we must do more to protect the mothers, daughters and sisters in our communities -- not only by fighting for equal pay for equal work, but by passing the Violence Against Women Act that has been stalled by partisanship and gridlock in Congress.
