At the First Presidential Debate: Let’s Ask Clinton and Trump to #RepresentHer

hillary-trump

American women are still not guaranteed paid parental leave, universal pre-K for their kids, or equal pay. Let’s use this election to demand policies that promote gender equality in the workplace and beyond.

Join us tonight starting at 9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT to live tweet the first Presidential debate on NBC. Today and throughout this election, we’ll make sure our elected officials #RepresentHer! Together, we can hold politicians accountable for representing and meeting the needs of women, girls, and their families.

Onwards,

Jennifer Siebel Newsom & The Representation Project Team
