In honor of International Women’s Day this Thursday, it is more important than ever to celebrate the extraordinary impact of women on communities throughout the world. According to a new report released by UN Women on February 14, “Turning
Promises Into Action: Gender Equality in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development,” there is far more we must do to ensure that women are reaching the global benchmarks set in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. This is why I invite you to
cosponsor my bill, H.R. 4932, the Women and Climate Change Act of 2018, which would provide coordinated and comprehensive strategies to mitigate the effects of climate change on women and girls around the world.
