  • Sandra Fluke

    More than one hundred and twenty people packed into the Warren headquarters this morning for coffee and donuts with Elizabeth Warren and women’s rights advocate Sandra Fluke.

    Fluke came to national attention in February 2012 when Congressional Republicans prohibited her from testifying, instead hearing from a panel of men on a question of women’s health. Rush Limbaugh and other conservatives then launched personal attacks on Sandra's integrity.

    She took on Scott Brown in her remarks. “He did not stand up for the women of Massachusetts when he voted against equal pay for equal work. He took his one opportunity to vote for a woman for the Supreme Court and he voted against her."

    She stressed that the Blunt Amendment, which Brown co-sponsored, was a sweeping attack on men and women’s health care, and was quite unpopular because it was so extreme.

    She endorsed Elizabeth Warren as “one of the women on the public stage that I look to. I have so much respect for her diligence and integrity.“

  • All of our daughters

    I have no doubt that Senator Brown is a good husband and a good father to his daughters. But this is an issue that affects all of our daughters and our granddaughters and what matters here is how Senator Brown votes.

    He has gone to Washington and he has had some good votes, but he has had exactly one chance to vote for equal pay for equal work, and he voted no.

    He had exactly one chance to vote for insurance coverage for birth control and other preventive services for women, he voted no.

    And he had exactly one chance to vote for a pro-choice woman from Massachusetts to the United States Supreme Court, and he voted no.

    Those are bad votes for women. The women of Massachusetts need a senator they can count on, not some of the time but all of the time.  

    I want to go to Washington to be there for all of our daughters and all of our granddaughters. 

  • The Republican Agenda Against Women

    This week, the Republicans will present their vision for the future at their convention -- and on national television for millions of people to see.

    They will make a lot of promises, but one thing they probably won't talk much about is their platform to strip away a woman's right to choose, even in cases of rape or incest.

    We need everyone to know just how out-of-touch the Republican platform is for women and families across Massachusetts and around the country. Share our brand-new TV ad with your family and friends:

    Earlier this year, Scott Brown voted with his Republican Party against equal pay for women. He cosponsored the Blunt amendment, a Republican bill that could allow employers and insurance companies to deny women insurance coverage for basic health care services -- even contraception -- by citing vague moral objections.

    And Scott Brown supports Republicans Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan -- a presidential candidate who says he wants to end Planned Parenthood and a vice presidential candidate who cosponsored legislation that could outlaw some birth control pills.

    Last week, Scott Brown received the endorsement of Massachusetts Citizens for Life -- the Commonwealth's leading anti-choice organization. They said:

    "We consider [Scott Brown] a senator who votes prolife. We have to take his word for it when he says he is prochoice. But what we're looking for is someone who votes prolife, and he does."

    Women and families across the country need to know what the Republican agenda means for them. And people in Massachusetts need to know that they can't count on Republican Scott Brown.

    Get started now. Spread the word with our new TV ad before the Republican National Convention starts on Tuesday.
