WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Winning For Women (WFW) released the following statement after Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Mitt Romney (R-UT), and Representatives Ann Wagner (R-MO) and Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) introduced a paid family leave bill:
“If we want to encourage women to lead, we need to promote policies that reflect today’s workforce and support working mothers and fathers. WFW applauds Senators Rubio and Romney, and Representatives Wagner and Crenshaw for their efforts to help Americans, particularly working class Americans, start and raise a family. This year alone, Republicans have put forward two bills to make parental leave more affordable. Our grassroots membership is comprised largely of suburban women and working moms, and we’re excited to see Republicans taking on issues that matter to them,” said WFW spokeswoman Olivia Perez-Cubas.
