Michigan Democratic Party Statement on Joe Biden’s Agenda for Women

The Michigan Democratic Party released the following statement on behalf of Chair Lavora Barnes on Joe Biden’s newly released Agenda for Women:

“Donald Trump has been a disaster for women’s rights as he partners with Mike Pence to push extreme anti-choice abortion restrictions, fights to gut critical protections for maternity care, and fails to follow through on his promises to expand paid leave or child care. His presidency has represented nothing less than a war on women and the issues we care about. As women, and especially women of color, disproportionately suffer from COVID-19 and the economic devastation it has brought, we need a president now more than ever who will put women and women’s issues at the forefront of their policy efforts. With the release of this new, comprehensive agenda and after decades of fighting for women’s rights, I’m confident Joe Biden will be that president and I look forward to working with him to build a more equitable future.”
