(CNN) Beto O'Rourke unveiled Wednesday a plan aimed at guaranteeing women's equality in the workplace, featuring proposals that would mandate equal pay, require accommodations for pregnant women and reduce child care costs.

The former Texas congressman's plan comes a week before 12 Democratic candidates meet in Ohio for their fourth presidential debate, hosted by CNN and The New York Times.
