Duckworth Addresses Women’s March on Washington

WASHINGTON, DC] – U.S. Senator Tammy

Duckworth (D-IL) shown in the center addressed

the 2017 Women’s March on Washington recently,

calling on those in attendance to get involved in their

communities. Following her remarks, Duckworth

released the following statement:

“Right now, there are real threats to women’s

rights and civil rights in our country. However, the

core values of our great nation – values for which I

and countless other servicemembers risked our lives

and limbs to protect – are stronger than the agenda

of any one person. The best way we can fight for

our rights is for more people to get involved in the

political process. To everyone who attended a march

today, stay involved in your community. Stand up

and make your voice heard. Together, we can ensure

that every woman – no matter her race or religion –

has the right to fair pay, the right to make decisions

about her own body and the right to a safe workplace

environment.”
