With just three days left until election day, the race is tightening. New polling indicates that Trump is just a polling error behind Hillary, so there has never been a more important time to get out the vote. When talking to your friends about this election, we think it’s important to highlight stark differences in how these candidates represent and advocate for women in our country.
Reason #3: Women’s Rights and Opportunity
Hillary Clinton has a long history of standing up for women’s rights. From leading the U.S. delegation to the UN Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing, where she proclaimed that “women’s rights are human rights” to creating the first ever Ambassador-at-Large for global women’s issues as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton has proven herself a champion of women’s rights in America and around the world.
Clinton has been fighting for women and girls her entire career—and she’s not going to stop now. In fact, she’s just getting started. As President, she will:
- Work to close the pay gap.
- Fight for paid family leave
- Make quality, affordable childcare a reality for families
- Increase the minimum wage
- Defend and enhance Social Security
- Protect women’s health and reproductive rights
- Confront violence against women
- Promote women’s rights around the globe
Hillary knows that that these challenges are not just “women’s issues”—they are family issues, they are economic issues, and they are crucial to our future competitiveness.
