Hillary Clinton: Clock “Turning Back” for Women in U.S.

By Katie Glueck, Politco.com – January 13, 2013 Hillary Clinton warns in a new book  that the “clock is turning back” on  women across America and offers a  passionate argument for prioritizing  the advancement of women and girls. Clinton, the former secretary of state and possible presidential contender, is one of a slew of high-profile contributors to a new report set to be released Sunday compiled by author and activist Maria Shriver and the liberal Center for American Progress. “[Fighting] to give women and girls a fighting chance isn’t just a nice thing to do,” Clinton writes in “The Shriver...

GOP Staffers/Candidates Taking Classes “How Not to Offend Women”. HUH?

THIS IS NOT AN ONION ARTICLE.  Twitter went wild yesterday when reports of this GOP training hit  with the trending hashtag – #HowToTalkToWomen.   How to Talk to Women?  Really? Maybe if the GOP would stop harassing women they would know how to talk to them instead of interfering with their: a) private healthcare decisions, b) paycheck equality, c) anti-discrimination based on gender & sexual orientation, d) domestic violence protections e) I don’t have enough room hear to list everything. WHAT’S NEXT?  How to talk to Minorities?  How to talk to Young Voters?  How to talk to the Elderly?  How...

Hillary Clinton – Most Formidable Presidential Frontrunner in Modern Times

We are lucky that we are able to witness this phenomena on our times…the most qualified presidential candidate ever and a woman, to boot. We’ve been talking about breaking that ultimate glass ceiling -the one that exists in the White House. I strongly believe that Hillary is the one to do it.  Let’s all hope and pray she decides to run in 2016!

“War on Women” Moves to the Voting Booth

UPDATE:  TERRY MCAULIFFE’S VICTORY YESTERDAY IN THE VIRGINIA GOVERNOR’S RACE ATTRIBUTED TO THE OVERWHELMING WOMEN’S VOTE. EFFORTS TO RESTRICT THE WOMEN’S VOTE HAVE A SUDDEN NEW PURPOSE. ——————————————— We always knew they didn’t like us women voting but now it’s clear. Voter suppression is threatening us at the polls – and spreading legislature to legislature across the country. You better  be paying attention. In Missouri, we fully expect the GOP to put Voter ID on the ballot in November 2014 (will go straight from the GOP-controlled legislature to the ballot, no stops in between).  They’ve been trying for 9 years...

North Carolina 12 year old Speaks UP for Voters Rights

“I AM NOT A PROP! I am part of the new generation of suffragettes and I will not stand silent while laws are passed to reduce the amount of young people in voter turnout in my home state!” Think sometimes that you, as a power of one, can’t do anything about discrimination and suppression of rights happening all around you? This North Carolina 12 year old will make you think otherwise. Madison Kimrey has been an activist participating in the ‘Moral Mondays’ this summer in her state capitol- protesting against voter suppression advocated by her GOP Governor and legislature.

Texas Has Found a Way to Deny Women the Vote. Really?

Pay attention!   Voter suppression efforts have been gaining steam around the country.  I know this well with Missouri being a poster child state advocating for Voter ID  the past eight years.  Now the GOP wants a constitutional amendment allowing Voter ID on the Missouri November 2014 ballot – and won’t sleep until it’s done. With the recent Supreme Court decision gutting a part of the Voting Right Act, the Koch Brothers and the GOP feel emboldened to win at the ballot box. And now —they have more incentive to keep voters from voting.  Candidates like Sen. Wendy Davis threaten...
