Washington, D.C. — Independent Women’s Forum (IWF), a leading national women’s organization, celebrates the beginning of Women’s History Month as an important time to reflect on the triumphs and advances of America’s women.
Carrie Lukas, President of Independent Women’s Forum, released the following statement:
“Women, in all their individual variety, have been at the forefront of movements to change society for the better. They’ve risen to be leaders of industry and founders of business empires. They’ve made life-saving discoveries and time-saving inventions.
Women’s influence is in every sphere and at every level.
“Women’s influence is in every sphere and at every level. Women are the cornerstones of families making everyday decisions that impact themselves, their families, their communities, and our nation. And are increasingly leaders in the public square shaping our path forward.
“This March, as we recognize the 100 year anniversary of women’s suffrage, let us celebrate all women—the trailblazers, the brave, the resilient, the unifiers—who have worked, and those who continue, to lead the way.”
IWF continues to advocate for policies that improve the lives of women and their families. In the 2nd edition of the “Working for Women” agenda, IWF offers recommendations for policy reforms that will give women greater opportunities and more choices by encouraging the creation of a more innovative and flexible workplace. Reforms like earned leave, permanent tax cuts for workers, increasing tax credits for children, eliminating licensing regimes that fail to advance legitimate public safety or quality concerns, removing barriers to flexible work scheduling, and clarifying the Pregnancy Discrimination Act.
Independent Women’s Forum is dedicated to developing and advancing policies that aren’t just well intended, but actually enhance people’s freedom, choices, and opportunities.
