when women vote…

2 Nov

When women vote, we effect change.  We honor the sacrifices of our foremothers who paved the way for us and we pass along to our daughters and granddaughters the need, privilege and responsibility to do the same.

This fabulous graphic was designed by one of my favorite people for the 51% Club.

Now add your own finish to the sentence, “When Women vote…”  and leave it in the comments.

And then vote.

The power of voting

Just something funny I found on facebook showing just how powerful a woman’s vote can be.

Women voter stereotype

31 Oct

I came across this opinion article where the author talks about women taking backward steps in using their ability to vote. She points out that women are often too busy to read the newspaper or watch the nightly news, let alone a debate, to learn what the candidates really stand for and are instead voting with their “heart instead of their head”. She calls this the woman voter stereotype. The author is upset that women have worked so hard to get the vote years ago and aren’t even taking the time to get informed about who they want to vote for, or even voting. Do we take that right for granted?
