NOW Congratulates Women's Rights Proponent
Ed Markey on Win in Massachusetts
Statement of NOW President Terry O'Neill
June 25, 2013
The National Organization for Women is delighted that Ed Markey has been elected to the United States Senate and will represent the state of Massachusetts. Senator-Elect Markey has long been an uncompromising advocate for a range of women's issues, defending reproductive justice and supporting legislation to close the pay gap. His support for Social Security, marriage equality and economic justice makes him a strong ally of NOW, and we look forward to working with him as we continue the fight for equality for all women.
