Carolyn Maloney


About the Author

Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney was elected to New York’s 14th congressional district (parts of Manhattan and Queens) in the House of Representatives in 1992, the so-called Year of the Woman. Chair of the Subcommittee on Financial Institutions and Consumer Credit, vice chair of the Joint Economic Committee, and former cochair of the Congressional Caucus on Women’s Issues, she passed numerous bills to improve the lives of women and families. Her work on antirape legislation was the basis of a Lifetime movie A Life Interrupted, in which one of the major characters was Carolyn B. Maloney. Among her achievements are passage of legislation to end trafficking of women, improve women’s health and reproductive rights, expand affordable child care, create a human rights commission in Afghanistan, and provide funding for women’s programs to combat the Taliban’s oppression.
