Student Loan Debt is a Gender Issue

The Feminist To-Do List

 It takes less than one minute to fight the patriarchy

Want to get involved but only have a few minutes to do so? Check out these quick actions you can take!

Support the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act

Frontline workers are most impacted by pregnancy discrimination. Overrepresented in physically demanding jobs, women of color and immigrant women are especially impacted by employers refusing to accommodate pregnant workers with medical needs. Tell your Senators to PASS the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act without delay!

Support the Women’s Health Protection Act

Tell the Senate: Vote YES on the Women’s Health Protection Act. This critical legislation would protect the right to abortion throughout the United States and guard against the dangerous abortion bans and medically unnecessary abortion restrictions being pushed forward by state politicians.

Paid Leave for All

Contact your senators and representatives today and tell them to reinstate emergency paid leave and pass permanent paid family and medical leave so that families and businesses have the support they need—and so we’re never unprepared for a crisis again.

For the five minute feminist

Have some extra time to commit to taking action today? These actions are perfect for you!

Support the Freedom to Vote: John R. Lewis Act

The time is NOW to put as much pressure on the Senate as possible to pass the Freedom to Vote: John R. Lewis Act and ensure that all Americans have the ability to meaningfully participate in democracy through our most fundamental right to vote.

Demand More for Women and Families

Women need policies that help families thrive: Paid leave. Childcare. Payments to families. Healthcare. Call your Senators today and tell them they must prioritize building back better for all women, caregivers, and families.
