We are moms, daughters, students, athletes, survivors and businesswomen who believe our voices matter.
There’s a growing trend among our nation’s politicians to allow men to enter women’s spaces — public bathrooms, showers, locker rooms. As if this weren’t absurd enough, none of these politicians seems interested in talking with us — the women who will be most impacted by these rules—to learn how we feel about it.
We are standing together to share our stories with you. Together we say, Ask Me First. We’ll tell you why these efforts are anti-woman, how they directly harm each of us, and why politicians should never consider bringing them forward.
As we all consider the policy changes we're seeing concerning privacy and safety in restrooms and locker rooms, we think there are certain voices that are being ignored -- perhaps on purpose.
When women contact their elected officials and respectfully ask them to consider all sides of the issue before making a decision, it often change things. The bathroom issue is especially dangerous, because it puts so many people at risk.
You can send a short email to your local, state and federal officials urging them to “Ask Me First.” We’ve made it easy through our Action Center.
Sharing your story will give other women the confidence to say something.
If you've run into issues in a space where you expected privacy, please share it below. We'll publish some of these on our "Stories" page. We promise to only use your first name, city and state.
