Women's groups endorse Rep. Walsh

Planned Parenthood, Emily’s List and RI NOW endorse Rep. Donna Walsh for re-election
Planned Parenthood Votes! RI PAC, the Rhode Island Chapter of the National Organization for Women and Emily’s List have endorsed the re-election bid of Rep. Donna Walsh for Rhode Island House District 36.

Rep. Walsh has been a long-time advocate for women’s rights starting in her first term in the RI General Assembly when she spearheaded the push for equal pay for comparable work.

In the last session of the General Assembly, she fought for an end to the practice of health insurance companies charging women more than men simply because they are women. She also won the enactment of legislation ending the practice of shackling women prisoners while they are giving birth.

She is an unflagging supporter of women’s reproductive rights and marriage equality.

Rep. Walsh said, “I am proud to receive the endorsements from these vitally important organizations who work every day for women’s health, women’s rights and equality. I am honored to have their support.”

Representative Walsh represents House District 36 which covers all of Charlestown and Block Island as well as parts of Westerly and South Kingstown.
