The Womens Network,
Advocates for Democratic Principles, is dedicated to
the achievement of a society that is both free and fair, embracing
the Four Freedoms set forth by Franklin D. Roosevelt and the
Core Principles of the Democratic Party.
The Network seeks to recapture and promote
the principles that historically have distinguished the Democratic
Party as the party that reflects true American MORAL VALUES:
inclusion, diversity, and honest "compassion." We seek a government that ensures a safety net for
those who are not able to help themselves, and pays attention
to the needs of working men and women and their families;
and a party which promotes prosperity
for the vast body of citizens, rather than the few.
The Women's Network is committed to activating Kentucky women to take part in the political process, strengthening their influence and inclusion in policy- making decisions
We invite you to join this rapidly growing statewide organization. Help us expand our positive influence on local, state and national elections and educate Kentuckians about what Democrats stand for—true American values. Help us involve thousands of women in the grass roots efforts to improve the lives of women and families by supporting Democratic principles and candidates who abide by those principles.
The Women's Network Stands Up for
Reform of Kentucky Legislative Sexual Harrassment Policy
The Women's Network, Advocates for Democratic Principles, urges
the full membership of the Legislative Ethics Commission to review
the recent ethics complaint dealing with sexual harassment within the
Legislative Research Commission.
We congratulate and support Rep. Joni Jenkins, a long-time member
of TWN, for sponsoring an amendment to SB234 that established
actions taken by a former legislator while he or she is a member of the
General Assembly to be within the definition of legislator; required the
Legislative Ethics Commission membership to include at least one
member of a minority group and both genders; and prohibited a
legislator from using his or her official position to subject another
person to harassment or sexual harassment.
The Women's Network regrets the Kentucky Senate did not pass
Senate Bill 234.
