As part of the third class of women to ever graduate from Dartmouth, Annie has been breaking ground for women her entire career. As an adoption attorney for 25 years, Annie worked with women of every age and background facing unplanned pregnancies, and is a staunch defender of a woman’s right to make her own health care decisions.
Annie supports the MeToo movement, and after coming out with her own story, formed the Bipartisan Task Force to End Sexual Violence. Annie is working to pass the MeToo law which will require politicians to use their own money, not taxpayer funds, to settle abuse cases, increase transparency, and make it illegal to impose non disclosure agreements on survivors who step forward. Annie continues working to address sexual assault in the military, and helped lead the successful effort to increase whistleblower protections for those who report these crimes. She also helped introduce the Campus Accountability and Safety Act to combat sexual assaults on college campuses.
Annie is working to pass critical reforms that will help level the playing field for Granite State women and their families - like the Paycheck Fairness Act to ensure women can access equal pay, affordable childcare, and expanded sick and family leave.
