Issues >> Protecting Women’s Rights and Health Care
When Jacky started her career in technology, she had to work a second job as a member of the Culinary Workers Union to make ends meet. Early in her career, she experienced pay discrimination, when her superiors provided larger raises to male colleagues. In Congress, Jacky will be a champion for women, and she will fight to ensure they get equal pay for equal work. She supports making childcare more affordable and accessible for working families and promoting young girls’ interest in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) education.
Jacky believes that women’s health care decisions are personal, and that government has no place getting between a woman and her doctor. She’ll oppose any effort to defund Planned Parenthood, or restrict women’s ability to make their own health care and contraception decisions.
