RELEASE: NHDP Launches Women’s Equality Week Push to Hold Ayotte Accountable for Record of Blocking Priorities of Women and Families

Highlighted Today: Ayotte’s Repeated Votes Against Paycheck Fairness

Concord, N.H. -- Today, the New Hampshire Democratic Party launched a week-long push leading up to Friday’s nationally-observed Women’s Equality Day to hold Kelly Ayotte accountable for her record of blocking the priorities of women and working families. This initiative will include daily reminders to New Hampshire voters regarding Ayotte’s record of putting special interests before gender equality and a digital advertising campaign that encourages viewers to get the facts about Ayotte’s real record at AyotteFactCheck.com. 

Today’s women’s equality week reminder to New Hampshire voters focuses on Ayotte’s repeated votes against the Paycheck Fairness Act. While women across the United States still earn only an average of 79 cents on the dollar compared to men for full-time, year-round work, Kelly Ayotte sided with her corporate special interest backers and voted FOURseparate times against the federal Paycheck Fairness Act, a common-sense measure that would take additional steps to close the persistent wage gap between men and women. 

“Time after time in Washington, Kelly Ayotte has put her special interest backers before the priorities of New Hampshire women and families,” said New Hampshire Democratic Party Press Secretary Melissa Miller. “In the lead up to Women’s Equality Day, the New Hampshire Democratic Party intends to make sure that all New Hampshire voters know her real record on these issues, including her repeated votes to block the common-sense federal Paycheck Fairness Act.”
