Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson Celebrates Women's History Month
DALLAS, TX – Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson released the following statement in honor of Women’s History Month:
“During Women’s History Month we honor the brave women whose shoulders we continue to stand upon today. We celebrate this legacy of resilience as they demonstrate what it looks like to be persistent in overcoming barriers presented across multiple generations. Women have been at the forefront of movements that have shaped the American identity into what is today. And we will continue to forge a brighter future through supporting STEM education for young girls and women, securing equal pay, providing accessible healthcare, and the right to a safe educational environment; which are all key elements needed to bring this vision of equality to every citizen.
“This month we recognize every organizer and advocate who committed themselves to a cause working to achieve equality in every avenue of life. America is a land of opportunity; we must never forget our commitment to providing a better legacy for those to come than what was left to us. The heights of the achievements our daughters and granddaughters reach will be the testament of the work we accomplish in our lifetimes. Therefore, I will continue to make legislative decisions with the best interests of young girls and women in mind.”
