Today, October 2nd, 2014, marks the one year anniversary of the “We Won’t Go Back” rally, where people from all across the state gathered outside the Ohio Statehouse to stand together against the anti-women agenda being pushed through the legislature by the Kasich Administration. In response, Ohio Democratic Women’s Caucus Chairwoman Kathy DiCristofaro, and Ohio Democratic County Party Chairs Association President Janet Carson jointly released the following statement:
“It was one year ago that people from all across Ohio gathered at the Statehouse to send a clear message to Governor Kasich: No matter how many anti-women bills he signs trying to take women’s rights back to the 1950’s, “We Won’t Go Back.” Throughout the past four years of John Kasich as Governor, he’s proven again and again that he is wrong on the issues that matter to women and their families: paycheck fairness, access to women’s health care, a strong public education system, and good-paying jobs that earn a living wage.
“We are proud to support our statewide ticket, half of whom are women, and will be the strongest advocates for Ohio families. Over the next 33 days, our focus remains turning out voters to elect Ed FitzGerald, Sharen Neuhardt and the rest of our Democratic candidates.”
