2014 Candidate for House of Representatives committed to Women’s Rights
Washington, D.C – The National Women’s Political Caucus (NWPC) proudly re-endorses Ann McLane Kuster as she runs for re-election as Representative for New Hampshire’s second district. Kuster has been a champion for women’s issues and has staunchly defended a woman’s right to choose throughout her entire career.
“Ann Kuster has worked to tackle important issues such as sexual assault in the military since the day she assumed Congressional office. It is clear that she prioritizes women’s issues,” stated NWPC President Linda Young. “We are proud of her work so far, and are excited to see what is to come.”
Before serving in Congress, Ann Kuster served as a long-time activist and advocate. She fought for access to affordable health care and higher education for families. Kuster was an adoption attorney for 25 years, giving her an extensive and intimate look into the problems facing women, such as unplanned pregnancies. Kuster serves in the United States’ first all-female congressional delegation representing New Hampshire in Congress.
“Ann Kuster has proposed an Economic Agenda for Women and Families, advocating for crucial reforms – including the Paycheck Fairness Act to address the inequality of women’s access to equal pay,” said Vice President for Political Planning Donna Lent. “Working to end gridlock in Congress and work across party lines is crucial, and has been a cornerstone of Kuster’s work.”
The NWPC is a national, non-partisan, grassroots membership organization dedicated to identifying, recruiting, training and supporting women candidates for elected and appointed offices at all levels of government.
