Marching Toward Coverage: How Women Can Lead the Fight for Universal Healthcare
Women can no longer sit back and watch as politicians dismantle the health care reforms made possible by the Affordable Care Act. Instead, we need to move past the current political polarization, and continue to march toward health care for all.
With 28 million Americans uninsured, and millions more who can’t afford their coverage, I’ve been asking myself the fundamental question: Can we, as a nation, do better? I believe we can and will—once women begin to engage collectively around this topic. I felt called to write this book and to do it in a way that brings a feminist lens to the universal healthcare debate. I want to empower more women to engage in that debate. My goal is to simplify complex policy ideas about making change in the healthcare coverage system into an approachable and engaging framework. I combine a personal perspective on health care issues with my professional perspective on health policy. I draw on my experience as a policy expert, strategist, and implementer, as well as a mother, daughter and friend who has faced some challenging health issues. I offer no easy panacea, but instead suggest a pragmatic path forward, one that recognizes health care as a fundamental human right, factors in the role of social determinants, and ensures coverage for all.
