Martha McSally on Civil Rights

 

 


I know first-hand the discrimination women face

As the first woman in U.S. history to fly a fighter aircraft in combat and command a fighter squadron, I know first-hand the challenges, biases, harassment, and discrimination women in our country face. I managed to break through these glass ceilings along with many other trail-blazing women who figured out how to succeed in a very male-dominated environment. Now, I want to continue fighting for women's rights in Congress.

I fought for eight years to overturn a Pentagon policy requiring U.S. servicewomen to wear Muslim garb when off base in Saudi Arabia. After more than six years, I was ordered to follow these demeaning and discriminatory policies and threatened to be court-martialed if I did not comply. I complied for 13 months while continuing to advocate for a policy change, then put my career on the line and filed McSally vs Rumsfeld in court. I then shepherded legislation to overturn the policy once and for all.
