This Mother’s Day, let us honor the fabulous women in our lives by promoting policies that help women achieve the economic success they so rightfully deserve and our country needs. Because, while cards are nice, paid family and medical leave strengthens families. While candy is sweet, affordable, quality child care impacts generations to come. And, although flowers are beautiful, increasing the minimum wage and ensuring equal pay changes lives.

Your voice is crucial in the fight to ensure that every woman has the power to reach her potential. Join with women across the country – share your story – and make sure to share your thoughts with #WhatMothersNeed this Mother’s Day.

Together, we can unleash the power of women, strengthen our economy and create a brighter future for generations of women to come. Because – as we know – When Women Succeed, America Succeeds.
