(Washington, D.C.) – Today, Congresswoman Veronica Escobar (TX-16) issued the following statement in recognition of International Women’s Day:

“On International Women’s Day, we honor the extraordinary contributions that women have made and recognize that our work to achieve equality is far from complete. Whether marching for the right to vote and reproductive rights, raising their voices in support of equal pay, or speaking out against inhumane immigration policies that separate children from their mother’s arms, women in our communities are leading the fight towards progress.

“Today, as we celebrate their courageous work, let’s recommit ourselves to build a better future so women and girls from El Paso, the United States, and across the world have full and equal participation in our economy and society.”
