Given the fact that in two weeks, Virginians will go to the polls to decide, among other things, whether to elect some of the most anti-choice politicians (e.g., George Allen, Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan) in this country's history, the trailer for this new film on Virginia Republicans' relentless war on women is very timely. From an email by one of those interviewed in the film:

New York based Ride5 Films, an award-winning film and television production company that develops fact-based series, documentaries and branded content, is creating a documentary detailing the War on Women in Virginia called Political Bodies. Please see the trailer here.

Please share it on your Facebook pages, twitter feeds, web sites, blogs, etc. to help get the word out about the fight for women's reproductive rights, and why it is so important to all of us.  The more momentum we can get behind the documentary, the more exposure it will get, and the further the message will go!  Please feel free to forward this message to others you think would be interested in viewing and sharing.

P.S. For some background on Virginia Republicans' war on women, see: 1) Peaceful Rally for Women's Health Dispersed by SWAT Team in Richmond; 2) Starting Today, VA Republicans Mandate (aka, "Force") Women to Have Ultrasounds Prior to Abortion; 3) GOP Response to Virginia Women's Wishes: Call Out SWAT Team; Pass Ultrasound Bill Anyway; 4) Albo Says Wife Spurned Sex After Hearing GOP's Transvaginal Ultrasound Plan; 5) And Now "Personhood": VA Republicans "continue...to pass extreme bill after extreme bill"; and much more.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
