From Pennsylvania State Rep Mike O’Brien’s Newsletter Blog: Saturday [8/26 was] Women’s Equality Day commemorating the turning point in the 72-year struggle for the equal treatment of women and women’s rights – specifically Aug. 26, 1920, when a woman’s right to vote was sealed in the U.S. Constitution. History has certainly shown that women are capable of achieving great things. But, it’s much harder to do when stymied by an establishment that ignores or perpetuates the discrimination and stereotyping that still occurs every day.

Women’s reproductive rights, women’s health and safety, workplace rights and closing the gender wage gap are all issues that still need to be fought for and won for women in Pennsylvania. I want you to know that I am fighting for you, your mom, your daughter, your sister, your wife. We need to change the mindset and open some eyes. Working together, we’ll get there.
