The Missouri GOP has a national reputation for being backwards on women's issues. With a dangerous delay on access to reproductive care, and cadre of leaders using terms like "legitimate rape" and "manly firmness," it's become a tragedy.
Will you help us fight back for Missouri women?
Due to GOP obstruction, 300,000 hard working Missourians are missing the chance to have quality healthcare coverage though Medicaid Expansion, and the state is losing billions of dollars in investment. This is a crisis - let's put an end to it.
Are you with us?
In Missouri, you can still be fired simply for who you are or who you love. The Missouri Nondiscrimination Act (MONA) would end that. But despite support for a broad coalition from both Parties and hundreds of business leaders, many legislators are standing in the way.
Think it's finally time to pass MONA?
Pay inequality is real - in Missouri, women are paid $0.71 for every $1 a man is paid for the same work. Democrats are fighting to guarantee Missouri women get equal pay for equal work.
Will you join the fight?

Will you join us in telling them Missouri schools come first?
Decades after Democratic President Lyndon Johnson passed the Voting Rights Act with the help of civil rights leaders, Republicans across the country are fighting to bring new methods of disenfranchisement like Voter ID, hitting the poor, the young, and the elderly hardest.
Will you help us fight back?
Wealthy extremists and big corporations are working with their cronies in Jefferson City to silence the voices of working families in the hopes of lowering wages, weakening unions and jeopardizing quality of life for ALL workers.
Will you fight back for working families?
For too many Missourians, working full time often isn't enough to get by. Democrats believe every working Missourian deserves a decent, living wage, because no person that works hard and plays by the rules should live in poverty.
