  • The Women's Debate
    The Women's Debate Nonpartisan Campaign to Elevate Women's Issues
    3y ago United States

    There is a pervasive misunderstanding of women’s issues and the social structures that continue to put up barriers to equity. In a study released last August, respondents answered that when a 2016 presidential candidate said “women’s issues” he or she meant either equal pay or abortion rights. Further troubling is the disparity between the belief in equality—77% think women should have equal positions in solving community and national problems—and the understanding of how much power women actually have. Women make up only 20% of Congress but more than a third of respondents believed that women have equal power at the national level. Issues that affect women and girls, and often disproportionately, extend far beyond reproductive rights. Women have not had a representative seat at the table, and it shows in how the broader definition of women’s issues has been largely ignored in this election cycle.
