Excerpts from Event Speech

Rep Nancy PelosiRep. Nancy Pelosi: "For over four decades, the National Partnership for Women & Families has worked to promote fairness in the workplace; to protect women’s reproductive health and rights; and to ensure that all men and women can achieve the balance between work and family they need to thrive.

You fight for women, you fight for families, and you fight for America – you fight to make our country healthier, fairer, stronger.

You work each and every day to unleash the power of “strong women, strong families, and a strong nation.”

We will build the future we know is possible.

For we know when women earn equal pay, America’s economy will prosper.

When women ensure fairness and balance between work and family, American society will thrive.

When women succeed, America succeeds.

…Together, we can insist on a new culture of respect for the needs of women and families in Congress and across the country.

Together, we will carry on the work that began in Seneca Falls – and that has defined the heart of the National Partnership for Women & Families’ mission for decades.

Together, we will ensure that generations of women—our daughters and granddaughters—will enjoy the equal rights, equal treatment, and equal opportunities that they deserve.

We will support strong women, strong families, and a strong nation.

We will build the future we know is possible.

Thank you for your energy, your action, and your leadership on behalf of all Americans."
