WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Rep. Burgess Owens (UT-04) helped reintroduce the Women’s Bill of Rights to affirm the importance of acknowledging women and their unique and distinguishing characteristics and recognize their contributions to our nation.

“As a father of 5 daughters and 12 granddaughters, I am committed to eliminating barriers to women’s success in sports, business, and the workplace,” said Rep. Owens. “The Women’s Bill of Rights protects women from discrimination and affirms their biological identity. I am proud to support this commonsense piece of legislation to ensure a safe environment for girls to learn, grow, and thrive.” 

The bill acknowledges the biological differences between men and women, highlights the importance of differentiating between men and women in law for the purposes of protecting sex-segregated activities and organizations, and affirms the importance of using “mother” and “father” in written law to protect families and bolster parents.

The full text of the bill is available here.
