Women and Families

We understand that women’s issues are economic issues, and that is why creating jobs that pay well is so important to Florida Democrats. We understand that women’s rights are civil rights, and that is why Democrats fight against wage discrimination and violence against women.

With Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court, women’s rights are in serious danger. On the campaign trail, President Trump said that he would only nominate judges who believe Roe v. Wade should be overturned. Donald Trump and the Republican party think they know better than women and seem committed to getting between a woman and her doctor. Florida Democrats believe that women have the right to control their own reproductive choices, and will fight to ensure that women have access to contraception in their personal health insurance.
