On Equal Pay Day, the call to end gender discrimination in pay is dominating the campaign trail.    From California to Massachusetts and Wisconsin to Hawaii, nearly every single EMILY’s List-endorsed candidate for Senate, Congress and Governor has brought equal pay to the forefront to draw contrast with Republican candidates, who continue to stand in the way of progress for women and families.    Speaking from personal experience or talking about the impact the gender pay gap has on their constituency, our

Another summer has come and gone. And Congress has returned to Washington from their annual summer vacation. But don't worry, the GOP didn't take a day off from attacking women's rights (shocking!) while they were gone. It's been a crazy couple of months, which is why we wanted to compile a quick update.

That’s why we have our “On The List” candidates—these women are all smart, tough leaders who have tackled diverse challenges in their communities. And this week, we’re proud to have put six new rising star congressional candidates “On the List.”
