This summer, more than 330 company leaders signed the Don’t Ban Equality letter to send a clear message: you can’t have equality in the workplace if people don’t have access to reproductive health care. Learn more about the Don’t Ban Equality campaign.
When everyone is empowered to succeed, our companies, our communities and our economy are better for it.
But there is an important issue that is too often missing from the conversation about equality and empowerment: reproductive rights. From access to birth control to freedom from pregnancy discrimination, we know that reproductive rights are deeply tied to employees’ professional success and economic security.
Employees and consumers believe a woman’s access to reproductive rights is critical to her overall empowerment in the workplace. New research from Harris Poll and NARAL proves it.
2 in 3 employed adults say women’s reproductive freedom is important to their success in the workplace.
67% of adults feel it is at least somewhat important for their company to take a stand on reproductive freedom, including abortion.
Over half of employed adults (56%) say they would be more likely to purchase from a company that takes a public stand in support of women’s reproductive freedom.
