New York, NY- Today, Eleanor Smeal, President, Feminist Majority and former President,
National Organization for Women endorses Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney for
“More than ever before, we need Carolyn Maloney in Congress to continue being our leader in the fight for women’s rights, gender equality and to keep abortion legal and accessible. We are in the fight for our lives on abortion rights and she is a champion and a tireless leader on all feminist issues. I am proud to endorse Carolyn Maloney and urge New Yorkers to support and vote for her reelection.
As Chair of the Oversight and Reform Committee, she holds one of the most powerful positions in Congress and uses her power to fight for feminist issues.
Carolyn is a leader and a fighter who has an extraordinary record over her lifetime of writing and passing legislation on a wide range of progressive issues. Whether introducing the nation's first domestic partnership bill as a New York City Councilmember, championing the Equal Rights Amendment or leading the ongoing fight for reproductive freedom to keep abortion accessible, safe and legal, Carolyn has always been on
the frontlines, taking on issues that others think are impossible or too hard – and she wins.
Carolyn has the experience, expertise, passion and commitment to get things done during these most challenging times. Each day, she uses her clout to fight for women’s rights and gender equality for New York City, throughout the nation and around the world. New York needs Carolyn. Congress needs her. The nation needs her. I urge you to vote for Carolyn Maloney.”
