Kris, Ted Yoho’s actions do not exist in a vacuum.
When Ted Yoho called Alexandria “disgusting” and a “f*cking b*tch,” it reflected the same misogyny, sexism, and harassment that face womxn in workplaces and public spaces around the country — behavior that has been protected and excused for far too long.
Alexandria — and every member of the Squad — is a threat to the status quo that perpetuates systems of oppression, like the patriarchy and systemic racism. They represent so many womxn in our country who have experienced sexism in the workplace.
Kris: Make a $3 contribution to the Squad Victory Fund today to help re-elect the Squad to Congress this year and build the progressive infrastructure to elect more leaders who will fight for our values.
AOC, Ilhan, Rashida, and Ayanna are working to dismantle the patriarchy and fight for policies that will center justice for womxn and gender-nonconforming people — particularly people of color — who face sexism and discrimination in the workplace.
Countless womxn experience sexism and harassment every single day in the workplace, just for showing up in the world as themselves. From the wage gap to gender based violence, lived experiences are proof of systemic oppression and sexism that must be dismantled.
We need the Squad in Congress so they can continue to call out injustice and boldly legislate and advocate for equity while helping more womxn run for Congress. Join our small-dollar movement today and chip in $3 to re-elect the Squad this year and grow our movement for progress.
Thank you for everything you do to work for a brighter future,
Teams Alexandra, Ilhan, Rashida & Ayanna
