Women’s votes could determine this year’s election. From “legitimate rape” to equal pay, women have a lot at stake in this election and we should make our voices heard! It wasn’t until 1920 that women could get up and go out to the polls to vote. They picketed at the White House, armed only with signs, asking for the right to vote and by the day’s end, many of them were so injured, they were either jailed or beaten. Historically, women endured pain that has given us a voice in our present.
The gap among women between President Obama and Mitt Romney is only 8%. According to the Wall Street Journal, President Obama is at 51% where Romney isn’t far behind with 43%. Women love the truth and Romney hardly ever tells the truth. With that simple fact, he’s not the choice for women. One minute, he’s Pro-Life, the next he’s making up facts about not wanting to control what women do with their wombs.
We’re not buying what he’s selling. As women, we need to take clues from those before us and stand up…for something or we will indeed fall for anything. If you still don’t get it, let these photos from Mother Jones do the talking.
