In celebration of Women's Equality Day, Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi and other female leaders held a press conference Tuesday to launch their economic agenda that promises better jobs, wages and future for women on in San Francisco.
The press conference focused on sharing the stories of women and the importance of recognizing their struggle for equal pay, guaranteed paid family leave and affordable childcare.
“As we all know, when women succeed America succeeds,” said Pelosi.
According to Congresswoman Barbara Lee and Congresswoman Jackie Speier, who were both in attendance, “A Better Deal: Better Jobs, Better Wages, Better Future” is focused on the importance of prioritizing women in the economy.
"We're interested in better jobs, we're interested in steady jobs. We're interested in better wages, we're interested in stable economy. We're interested in a better future, and yes we're interested in a secure future," said Speier. "And that is something we do not have under this presidency."
The goal of the campaign is to help both women and men by creating good paying jobs to make it easier for families to suceed.
