“There is a need to restore women to those positions to ensure fair representation and provide role models for young female athletes.”
So, through the resolution, the senators supported the observation of NGWSD on February 1, as well as “marking the observation of National Girls & Women in Sports Day with appropriate programs and activities– including legislative efforts.”
Finally, support was also shown for all ongoing efforts to promote gender equity in sports and expand athletic opportunities and participation for all girls and women.
“Sports has the power to inspire us, and our country is better when women are empowered to participate and compete,” Senator Cantwell said.
Along with Senators Feinstein, Capito, Cantwell, and Murray, the resolution was also cosponsored by Senators Mazie K. Hirono, Marsha Blackburn, Susan Collins, Kyrsten Sinema, Maggie Hassan, Tammy Baldwin, Tammy Duckworth, and Amy Klobuchar.
