On the Issues

Over the past few years, violence against women has been glamorized, the exploitation of women has been normalized, and the real issues that impact women have been left off of the national agenda, moreover with the overturning of Roe, the Supreme Court has stripped away 50 years of legislation that protected women’s bodily autonomy. 33% of all victims of sexual assault reported to law enforcement were ages 12 through 17 and 34% were under age 12. Most disturbing is that one of every seven victims of sexual assault (or 14% of all victims) reported to law enforcement agencies were under age 6.

The absence of representation of women in DC means that our voices have been excluded and our exclusion has become ever more obvious than ever, as men in local and national state legislatures fail miserably in an attempt to determine policies surrounding our healthcare, economic, and social wellbeing.

Women deserve economic justice (the right to be paid a livable wage, protection from employment discrimination, and pay equity). The continual absence of women in the national legislature means that we will continue to be pushed to the fringes and ignored in Washington.

Voting for Dr. Vanessa Enoch means that you will put a woman in office who understands the challenges of women from all walks of life. As a first-generation college grad, I come from humble beginnings. I worked my way through college, and I have a substantial amount of student loans as a result. I know the frustrations of women across this country, and I will carry the message of the women from the 8th District in Ohio to Washington D.C. I will fight for gender equality and our right to be recognized as full citizens under the constitution of the United States. A vote for me means a win for women and a win for our children!

Dr. Enoch will fight for women’s access to reproductive healthcare, pass laws that guard against violence against women, and ensure that women have the right to travel to any state in the Union for whatever reason she chooses. This election year, it’s all on the line! I need your help to protect us from legislators who have no clue about the experiences of women.

Donate to help send Dr. Enoch to Congress!
