Representative Pete Aguilar Issues Statement on Women’s History Month
Today, Rep. Pete Aguilar (CA-31) released the following statement in recognition of Women’s History Month, which is celebrated during the month of March.
“This month we honor the sacrifices and achievements made by the women who have pushed our nation forward, from pioneers such as Susan B. Anthony, who led the women’s suffrage movement, to young female leaders today who continue that fight, advocating for full equality at home and in the work place. The women of our nation represent the brightest minds in the fields of math and science, they are our most dedicated public servants, and they have given their lives in the line of duty to ensure the safety and sovereignty of our country.”
“While we have made strides over the years, we still have work to do. Until the attacks on women’s access to healthcare cease and until we finally see pay equity fulfilled, this job is far from over.”
“We owe it to the women who paved the way and to those who walk in their footsteps, to remember and honor their service to our nation.”
Women’s History Month is celebrated throughout the month of March, honoring women of the past and present for their achievements and contributions to our nation.
