I was raised by a strong, smart woman; I married a strong, smart woman; I work with strong, smart women every day.
I have long been an advocate for equality in our society and workplace, which is why I support measures such as equal pay for equal work. There is no excuse for a pay discrepancy based on gender. Period.
I will be an advocate for equality, supporting measures such as the Violence Against Women Act, which Senator Pat Roberts voted against. I will fight to ensure fairness under the law.
