America, It’s Time To Pass the ERA

This was written by Kelila Krantz, Lily Greenberg Call, and Mara Cook. All three attend high school in California. “According to a poll in 2001 by the ERA Campaign Network of Princeton, 72% of people believe that the Equal Rights Amendment has already been passed. Contrary to this belief, the amendment is still waiting to be ratified. It’s true – there is no mention of gender equality in the Constitution, despite efforts to pass a bill outlining this simple right for about 100 years.  Equality is a fundamental human right that should be guaranteed in the Constitution, and it is...

The Two Young Women Changing High School Democrats of America

  Neah Bois is an athletic, skiing enthusiast from Utah. Eva Dickerson is an indie music-listener, feminist-promoting young woman from Maryland. What brings these two polar opposites together? They are both liberal, 17 year old high school juniors running for HSDA (High School Democrats of America) leadership positions. Neah Bois is the Chair of the High School Caucus at Young Democrats of Utah. She is quite used to conservative politics, but she does not let that stop her from flaunting her liberal ideology.

How the GOP can Win Back Women —-If They Really Want To…

I cannot believe what I read about Nevada’s GOP party platform.  Really!?? In Missouri the GOP has 32 horrible abortion bills and no interest in equality rights in the workplace, let alone marriage.

State Rep. Candidate to Women in Oklahoma: Please Stand Up

Cyndi Munson is running for State Representative in the state of Oklahoma. She shares her experience of running and why more women need to run in Oklahoma below. The “Great State” is the motto of my beloved Oklahoma. Oklahoma makes me think about my state’s gracious people, beautiful sunrises and sunsets, and most importantly, home. I know many Oklahomans think these very same things and share the same love for Oklahoma as I do. However, there are staggering statistics that tarnish the Great State’s image. These statistics highlight the disservice the women in our state are receiving from our leaders...

Can the GOP Change Its “War on Women” Image?

Pay attention to this Ladies. Looks like a smoke screen as GOP electeds CONTINUE to make absurd statements and push their anti-women agendas, especially in state legislatures.Missouri, for example, this year has introduced 32 (and counting) pieces of legislation that do nothing but harm women, especially low-income women who have limited choices of reproductive healthcare in the state already.  In the last month, my GOP colleagues  have debated on the floor with absurd statements like “it’s not too much to ask” or ” we want to make sure women know what they’re doing” when pushing for a 72 hour abortion...

MS Representation Friday!

BROUGHT TO YOU BY OUR SISTERS AT WOMEN’S CAMPAIGN FUND – MARCH 5, 2014 WE LOVE MS REPRESENTATION SO MUCH – WE WANT YOU TO LOVE IT TOO! Daily FailFormer Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko was recently profiled in the Daily Mail, but the article mostly dwelt on how her “kittenish ways” and “legendary blonde tresses” make her untrustworthy. She’s…too sexy for your trust. Too sexy for your trust. Ala-Shame-a Alabama lawmakers are attempting to advance several bills that wouldseverely restrict the time period in which a woman could obtain an abortion. It’s good to know that the big red X on their flag means...
