Today the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 5, the So-Called “Equality Act.”
Penny Nance, President and CEO of Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee, released the following statement:
“Today the U.S. House of Representatives tragically failed to protect women and girls. Speaker Pelosi’s deceptively-named “Equality Act” gives any man civil rights protections to claim he is a woman, at any time and for any reason. It erases Title IX fairness in sports and female safety and privacy rights in bathrooms, locker rooms, and women’s shelters. Today’s vote betrays women.
Mr. President, we urge you to stand against policies that abandon protections for women. The so-called “Equality Act” is a deeply flawed bill and an assault on women and girls in America.”
