The U.S. Congress is moving quickly to pass The Equality Act and we need to act quickly. 

Write or call your Representatives and Senators to vote NO on the Equality Act:
(Click here to find your Senator). 



To: Senator X
From: Name, Title


I am [name], and I am writing to request that Senator [SENATOR’S LAST NAME] vote NO on the so-called “Equality Act”when it comes up for a vote.

Many Americans have not considered the impact the Equality Act will have on women and girls. To be clear, the Women Picket DC coalition and I support human rights for all Americans. However, we object to the Act’s redefinition of the word “sex” to include so-called “gender identity.”


Our coalition has considered the consequences: if this bill is enacted, it will mean that female athletes will have to share playing fields and locker rooms with male athletes who claim to be female. It will mean that female prisoners will be forced to share locked prison cells with men who claim to be women. It will mean that women who reside in domestic violence shelters will be forced to share accommodations with men who claim to be women. It will mean that women and girls will have to share public accommodations with men who claim to be women.

Women spent years fighting for these very rights, and altering the language of sex-based protections erodes all of that progress.

In order to protect the sex-based rights of women and girls, vote no on the “Equality Act,” and support a national conversation on human rights. You will find links to our work below for more information about this vital conversation. Thank you for your time and consideration. If you have any questions, I’d love to speak with you.

If you already support our aim to defend sex-based rights, please reach out to our Director Courtney Piper to become involved in our efforts.

Kind regards,
YOUR NAME

Sample phone script for calling your Senator’s office


Hello, my name is [NAME] and I’m calling on behalf of a coalition, Women Picket DC, to request that Senator [SENATOR’S LAST NAME] vote NO on the Equality Act when it comes up for a vote.

To be clear, I support human rights for all Americans, however I object to the Equality Act’s redefinition of the word “sex” to include so-called “gender identity.” Our coalition has considered the consequences for female athletes who will have to use locker rooms with male athletes, the consequences for women who reside in domestic violence shelters who will be forced into rooms with men who claim to be women, and the consequences for women and girls in many other areas of public life. In order to protect the sex-based rights of women and girls, please vote NO on the “Equality Act,” and support a national conversation on human rights.

Thank you for your time, If you have any questions please call me at [YOUR PHONE NUMBER] or visit Womenpicketdc.org for more information.
