Though we can't fix all the problems women face with Congressional actions, the Affordable Care Act addressed some of the issues women have with insurance rates by regulating insurance companies in regards to not being able to deny women coverage and not being able to charge them more simply because they have particular anatomical features (i.e. a uterus, ovaries, and breasts). In 2014 these aspects of the law take effect (that is, if the Supreme Court doesn't overturn it).
Healthcare.gov outlines all of these features on their website.
