McMorris Rodgers to Refinery29: “I want to empower people”

“I want to empower people. I want to empower individuals and their families and their communities to be trusted to make the best decisions.”

That’s how House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) sums up the bold, forward-looking agenda that she and her Republican colleagues are building in the People’s House.

In a first-ever interview with Refinery29, McMorris Rodgers dishes on everything from women in politics to House Republicans’ vision for a more confident America: “What I’m about and what my colleagues are about as Republicans is ensuring that every person in this country — no matter who they are, no matter where they come from — has the opportunity for a better life. And to make sure that they have the freedom and the opportunity to do that.”

On women in politics, McMorris Rodgers shares her own personal advice for women today: “I would just encourage women to go for it … to step up – to work hard, persevere.”
