EMILY’s List President Stephanie Schriock Statement on Vote to Advance the Senate Paycheck Fairness Act
Republicans Standing in the Way of Economic Opportunity for Women
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today Stephanie Schriock, President of EMILY’s List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, released a statement on the vote to advance the Senate Paycheck Fairness Act in the U.S. Senate.
"Republicans had a chance to vote to advance a commonsense piece of legislation and to prove to American families that they aren't as out of touch as they seem, and instead chose to stand in the way of progress,” said Stephanie Schriock, President of EMILY’s List. The Paycheck Fairness Act is a necessary step in ending gender discrimination in pay and providing economic opportunity for all. Voters across the country are looking for leaders like our EMILY's List women in Congress who fought for the Paycheck Fairness Act and will continue the fight to make sure every family has a fair shot."
EMILY’s List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, has raised over $385 million to support pro-choice Democratic women candidates – making it one of the most successful political action committees in the country.
