Sean believes in supporting and expanding women’s rights and opportunities — by protecting reproductive rights, fighting for equal pay for equal work, defending women subjected to harassment and abuse, and much more.
In Congress, Sean:
- Cosponsored and helped pass the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act in to law, which fills gaps in existing domestic violence laws. He also introduced an amendment to add campus faculty to grant programs to train them to recognize domestic and sexual abuse.
- Condemned the Senate’s consideration of legislation that would have restricted women’s access to safe and legal abortions.
- Cosponsored the Paycheck Fairness Act to ensure that women receive the same pay as their male counterparts.
Too often, our laws and our culture fall short on granting women true equality. Sean believes that we must take bold action to address our shortfalls as a country. He is proud to be endorsed by Planned Parenthood and NARAL.
