    That should be the new slogan, bumper sticker, T-shirt etc.

    It is so encouraging to see young women steamed up about the loss of rights and the disrespect from GOP (and some Dem) men.  If it carries over to the ballot box in November, we have a real  chance of changing things.  There are a whole lot of good women running for the House and Senate this time, and it could really change things if the Senate stays Dem because Elizabeth Warren and Shelley Berkley take seats now held by Rs and Mazie Hirono (HI) and Tammy Baldwin (WI) hold seats that are now D, along with the 6 Dem Senate incumbent women who are running.

    The scientific uncertainty doesn't mean that climate change isn't actually happening.

      astounding stats on Women Voters
      Rutgers University Fast Facts on Gender Voting

      FYI:

      Since 1964, more women have been voting than men. SINCE 1964.

      Proportionally, from the eligible voters, more women than men vote, in larger numbers, since 1980.

      If you are a women, and you are sick and tired of hearing the "Olde Whyte Men's Club" pontificating on when or if you should have children and all other aspects of your reproductive life...

      WORK ON GOTV focusing on WOMEN in 2012.

      Sisters - together, we can send ALL THE REPUBLICANS home in 2012.

      Remember, as you GOTV this year, that just as Helen Reddy sang is lo those many years ago - WOMEN, in NUMBERS TOO BIG to IGNORE can be the driving force in US politics in the year 2012.

      If we want it bad enough.
