Beatty Statement on Women’s History Month

Washington, D.C. – Today, U.S. Congresswoman Joyce Beatty (OH-03) joined millions of Americans in marking the annual month-long celebration of Women’s History Month. In response, Beatty issued the following statement:

“During Women’s History Month, our nation pauses to reflect on the many successes and gains made by America’s women throughout history. Today, and every day, let us stand on the shoulders of our country’s many sheroes who blazed a trail for all of us to follow,” Beatty said. “While we celebrate the progress made, we must not lose sight of the numerous barriers that prevent countless women from achieving the American Dream.” Beatty continued, “All month long, I invite my constituents, fellow Ohioans and people across the country to join with me in honoring our past, and working to build an America where every woman has the power to reach their full potential—namely through pay equity and affordable childcare. As we all know, when women succeed, America succeeds.”

Throughout March, Congresswoman Beatty will be participating in a number of Women’s History Month events in Central Ohio and Washington, D.C.
