Butterfield Commemorates Women’s History Month
WASHINGTON, DC – On International Women’s Day, Congressman G. K. Butterfield (NC-01), is recognizing the contributions women have made in North Carolina and across the nation.
In honor of International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month, Congressman Butterfield issued a video release, stating in part:
“Whether marching for the right to vote, raising their voices in support of equal pay, preserving access to health care, or fighting to end gun violence, courageous women have always led the fight to create a more just and equal society.”
“If not for trailblazers, such as America’s first Congresswoman Jeannette Rankin or North Carolina’s own Eva Clayton who, as the first African American woman to represent our state in Congress, fought for equality and educational opportunities for all, so many of the doors for today’s leaders would not be open.”
“Today, the progress forged by these women and so many others stands as a testament to their spirit, affirming this truth: That when women succeed, America succeeds.”
