Rep. Cammack To Chair Bipartisan Women’s Caucus In 118th Congress
Press release from the Office of Congresswoman Kat Cammack
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Last night, the Congressional Caucus for Women’s Issues Co-Chairs, Representatives Jenniffer González-Colón (R-PR) and Madeleine Dean (D-PA), and Vice-Chairs Kat Cammack (R-FL) and Lucy McBath (D-GA), announced the next group of women taking on the Caucus’ leadership for the 118th Congress.
Congresswoman Kat Cammack will step up as Republican Co-Chair, with Congresswoman Susie Lee (D-NV) as her Democrat counterpart. Newly-elected representatives Monica De La Cruz (R-TX) and Emilia Strong Sykes (D-OH) will serve as Vice-Chairs.
“Over the last two years, the Women’s Caucus has played an instrumental role in uniting women lawmakers on both sides of the aisle around key issues including infant and maternal health, early childhood education, support for women veterans, and beyond. Through briefings, events, and off-site visits, we’ve demonstrated the power of working together to shape policies with real impact. I’m grateful to outgoing Reps. Madeleine Dean and Jenniffer González-Colón for their leadership and look forward to joining our new Democratic Co-Chair Rep. Susie Lee and co-vice chairs Reps. Monica De La Cruz and Emilia Strong Sykes during the 118th Congress,” said incoming Co-Chair Rep. Kat Cammack.
“I am honored to serve as Co-Chair of the Bipartisan Women’s Caucus, at a time when more women are serving in Congress than ever before – a record we have broken in each of my three terms in this body,” said incoming Co-Chair Rep. Susie Lee. “This caucus is a network of support and of unity. As women in Congress, there is so much more that unites us than divides us, and I greatly look forward to working across the aisle for the good of the American people.”
“Women’s rights are bipartisan. That is why I am honored to serve as Vice Chair of the bipartisan Congressional Women’s Caucus. The caucus is at the forefront of generation-defining legislation, whether it’s the Pregnancy Discrimination Act of 1978, which prohibited discrimination based on pregnancy status, or the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993, which provides job protection for people who must take leave to care for family or themselves due to a medical issue. Our work continues today in an effort to make the world fair for the next generation of women. We have a lot of work to do, and I’m ready to roll up my sleeves,” said incoming Vice-Chair Rep. De La Cruz.
“It is an honor to serve as a Vice Chair of this esteemed caucus that has already done significant work to advance equitable policies to empower and uplift women. As a legislator with a track record of working across the aisle, I look forward to continuing this work with all my colleagues to advance the needs of women in Ohio’s 13th Congressional District and across the nation, including accessing affordable healthcare, securing good-paying jobs, reducing infant and maternal mortality, and acquiring quality childcare. Together, we can ensure that all women have the resources and the support they need to succeed,” said incoming Vice-Chair Rep. Sykes.
“As the first woman elected to represent Puerto Rico in Congress in its history, it has been a tremendous honor to be part of the leadership of this Caucus and work towards advancing equitable policies to help ease burdens and help women succeed in all capacities. From ensuring healthcare and mental health access to diversifying the workforce to honoring the pioneers in paving the way for future generations. As a Caucus and as individuals, we have pushed our agendas toward our main goal of helping construct a solid, more equal future for women. I’m proud to pass the baton to an extraordinary group of esteemed colleagues. I will remain a proud member and collaborator of this Bipartisan Caucus as it continues doing impactful work,” said outgoing Co-Chair Rep. Jenniffer González-Colón.
“Serving as the vice co-chair and co-chair of the Bipartisan Women’s Caucus was an inspiring way to enter Congress — I’m grateful for the opportunities we had to reach across the aisle on issues that affect all women,” said outgoing Co-Chair Rep. Madeleine Dean. “Our shared efforts and work for women veterans, women’s maternal health, and women in STEM have stood out to me. I am confident that under the leadership of Reps. Susie Lee, Kat Cammack, Emilia Sykes, and Monica De La Cruz, the Bipartisan Women’s Caucus will continue to be a space for conversation, community, and a shared commitment to advancing policies for all women.”
In the past two years, the Bipartisan Caucus, in collaboration with the Women’s Congressional Policy Institute (WCPI) and other stakeholders, has successfully promoted initiatives to advance policy priorities and tackle the most pressing issues affecting women across the United States and abroad.
The Congressional Caucus for Women’s Issues (Bipartisan Women’s Caucus) is a 43-year-old Congressional Member Organization whose membership includes all Republican and Democrat women Members of the U.S. House of Representatives.
