Congressman Neal Celebrates Women's History Month
WASHINGTON, DC - Congressman Richard E. Neal released the following statement on International Women's Day in honor of National Women's History Month.
"March is Women’s History Month, a time when we honor the many extraordinary accomplishments made by women throughout history. From the right to vote to the freedom to work outside the home, women all over the United States have made important strides over the last century. While women have made great advances, we are reminded that there is still so much to be done to secure true equality.Women’s history is American history. And, women have brought us to where we are today through perseverance, courage, and solidarity. Future generations will look at the female leaders of today and yesterday and know that they are capable of achieving great things. I hope you will join me in celebrating this Women’s History Month and the many contributions women have made to our great country. Here in Congress, I will continue to defend the rights of women, fight for progress, and make sure every voice is heard."
